Ingredients

  • 10 oz. butter, softened
  • 2 lb bag of powdered sugar, 3/4 cup withheld
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (eye ball it)
  • 3 big spoonfuls powdered egg whites (the secret ingredient!)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • Milk or half and half, to thin to desired consistency

Directions

  • Cream the butter and sugar.
  • Add milk and cocoa, alternating.
  • Add powdered egg white and vanilla.
  • Beat until fluffy and delicious!

Notes

My mom recently made this for my step-father for his 54th birthday. From what I've read, you can substitute buttermilk if a baking recipe calls for milk -- which is exactly what she did. Buttermilk tends to give baked goods a better flavor and texture than milk.
