Basic Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
A very basic and simple chocolate buttercream icing that I have used for years. Great for cakes and cupcakes.
Recipe: Basic Chocolate Buttercream Frosting©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 10 min | Yield: About 3 cups
- 1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 4 or 5 tablespoons milk
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- Pinch of salt
Cream the butter, add the cocoa, vanilla, and 4 tablespoons of the milk and continue mixing until smooth. Add 3 cups of the powdered sugar to the mix and continue beating, adding the last cup of powdered sugar a little at a time, and alternating it with the additional 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk, adding only enough milk to achieve the desired consistency. You may not need all of the remaining milk.
