Add more cocoa powder. Good luck.

Use Hershey's syrup! I think it works a lot better than cocoa powder. The cake I made for Father's Day 2007 in my photos has Hershey syrup chocolate BC on it.

melt some dark chocolate with a little butter, let it cool slightly and add it in

so can you tell me how much you would add to say 8 cups of icing? I'm icing a 10" square

I can't. I am sorry. Just eyeball it. Start small. If you can get unsweetened chocolate, that would be best, IMOicon_smile.gif Let meknow how it comes out

Here is the recipe for Chocolate Syrup Frosting. Chocolate Fudge Sauce like you use to top ice cream is also wonderful!!
