    Yummy

    Anne Smith from

    I made a cake mix but the frosting I had was out of date and I had to come up with something easy and quick with ingredients I already had in the house....I didn't have cocoa but looked up hot chocolate! I was surprised to find this recipe and will use it from now on!

    Easy

    Connie Skelley from DAVENPORT, IA

    good and easy not as much chocolate flavor as I like, but still real good. I added powdered sugar until it reached desired thickness.

    Easy and Good Frosting

    janice brady from SAINT PETERSBURG, FL

    This was quick and easy especially since I had all the items I needed in my pantry already. The only thing was it was a tad too sweet, I think because of the one pound of confection sugar, I will make this again, but I think I will cut the sugar down to one half of a pound. Thank you for a good and easy recipe!

    LIFE SAVER!!!

    Ms. Blaschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    I had forgotten that I had promised to bring cupcakes to work yesterday morning. I was able to make and bake the cupcakes LATE,the night before, but did not have anything (or so I thought) in the house to make icing with. I remembered once searching under FROSTING in NESTLES recipes, and seeing something made with everyday kitchen products- so I went back and found this recipe. IT WAS A LIFE SAVER! Not only was it tasty, but I had everyhting right in my kitchen! I have now added this one to my RECIPE FILE - as it will be used again! (P.S. The cupcakes were a HUGE hit).

    Chocolate Cocoa Frosting

    Melva Hilton from Canon City, CO

    This frosting is easy to make and very good. I put it on dark cake type cookies I've made for years. Liked it better on the cookies than what I usually make.

    quick and easy

    Karen from Great Neck, NY

    This is a great idea! I never though of using cocoa mix like this. The buttercream is so tasty. I like the fact that i can make a lot or a little depending on how many packages I use. How novel! Keep these tricks coming!
