Rich, creamy chocolate frosting that’s simple to make and absolutely delicious! Yield:
~2 cups (see additional notes below) Ingredients:
1 cup butter, softened*
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk Instructions:
1. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter with an electric mixer. gradually beat in the vanilla, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar. Beat in enough milk to achieve a spreadable consistency.
2. Spread frosting on cake right after making the frosting. If you wait too long to spread the frosting, it will lose some of it’s light airy fluffiness when you spread it.
This frosting goes great on Homemade Deluxe Chocolate Cake Mix!
