Posted by shanney54This is the chocolate frosting recipe that I use. It has a good chocolate flavor and crusts good, too. I am not sure exactly how many cups this makes, but I had enough to frost a 2-layer 8-in cake that was torted and had some leftover. If you don't need a ton it can be halved also.
- 2 cups butter, softened (I use unsalted butter) 9 cups powdered sugar 2 1/2 cups cocoa powder 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cups milk
Cream butter in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Add vanilla and milk until desired consistency.
