Incredible and Easy Chocolate-Coffee Frosting

“I took this recipe from the Ghiradelli cocoa mix box and altered it a bit. I tend to find frosting recipes sickeningly sweet. This one is delicious and just the right sweetness, with a great mocha flavor. This recipe makes enough to cover the tops and sides of 2 9-inch rounds. Try it with the "Better than Box Cake" yellow cake recipe.”
