I made a chocolate marble Bundt cake and needed a special icing. I have several but nothing seemed to fit until this one. It is simple and tasty and yes it has calories.

NOTE: I did not use an entire1 pound of powdered sugar as I wanted my icing to run a little. I think the difference in taste is the heating of butter & cocoa together. I have another recipe where you just mix everything together and spread on the cake. It is good but not near as good as this one.
