Everyone has their favorite chocolate frosting, right? Well...here’s mine. I used this for my grandson’s birthday cake a while back. I used it on a chocolate cake....chocolate and more chocolate. Can’t go wrong with that, right?
Yummy Chocolate Frosting
1 1/2 cups butter ~ room temperature
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
7 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk
In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter and cocoa powder. Mix in the vanilla.
Add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, until it’s all added.
Drizzle in the milk and beat on high until light and fluffy.
This recipe makes a lot but is easily reduced by half. This amount frost a 3 layer 9-inch cake, two 9x13 cakes or 30 cupcakes.
