This is the most delicious, rich frosting. While great when eaten right away, I think it’s even better the next day.
1/2 cup softened butter
2-1/4 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup milk
It’s easiest to mix in a stand mixer, but you may also do it by hand. Cream butter until smooth. Add in vanilla. Gradually beat in confectioners sugar and cocoa. Add milk. You may add more or less milk to get it to the consistency you’re looking for. This makes enough to frost a 9″ x 11″ cake.
