Chocolate Buttercream Frosting is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Chocolate Butter Cream Frosting I made this frosting in hopes of something really good. It doesn't taste horrible but it was grainy and I could not figure out how to get rid of the grainy texture. I want a smooth icing like any other should be and this is NOT it...
