I made the lemon version of this frosting on a lemon cake and it was SUBLIME! The flavors of the fresh lemons just popped and it is the easiest frosting I think I've ever made. As an experiment, I finished it off with shredded coconut. Definitely a keeper.
So simple, so good, upped the choc chips a bit, but who's counting
