Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


The best easiest mexican choco frosting

I made this for a fiesta party for my niece and nephew. everyone Loved it. even the people that hated frosting and cake. They wanted to try it because of the Abuelita chocolate used and they couldn't get enough. This will definitely be the chocolate frosting I use from now on. perfect!
