Chocolate Frosting
  • 1/2 cup butter -- softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  1. Put the softened butter into a bowl. Sift the powdered sugar and cocoa over the butter. Cream together on low speed to blend. Add the vanilla and milk and mix on medium speed until frosting is smooth. You may add more milk if you like a thinner frosting for spreading, but we found that
  2. this is a great consistency.
