This frosting is truly drool worthy. It's rich and creamy and has a wonderfully smooth milk chocolate flavor. It's strongly sweet, but its sweetness is balanced by just a pinch of salt. In short, it's a great all-purpose chocolaty frosting that pairs perfectly with a wide range of cakes, cookies, and brownies.
This recipe is adapted from the milk chocolate frosting recipe that is posted over at Joy the Baker:
