Easy Fudge Frosting

This is a very rich frosting that tastes almost exactly like a piece of fudge. It is not dark like a candy bar like the canned fudge frostings, but don't let that fool you!

what do you mean by simple syrup? like corn syrup? pm me please!
This is the best fudge frosting ever! Very easy to spread, and it does taste just like real fudge!
what is simple syrup? what do you mean by 4 batches
Can this sit at room temp?
Simple Syrup can be made by mixing 2 parts water and 1 part sugar. example: 2 tsp water and 1 tsp sugar Just increase amount for what you need.
By 4 batches, I think the poster means, add a portion, 4 times. Don't dump in all at once.
What is the "dark chocolate"? Unsweetened baking chocolate? Dark chocolate candy bar?
