Did you look in the Recipe here in CC? There are many good recipe and all of them are with cocoa powder, I'm not sure but maybe you can substitute some of your powder sugar with cocoa powder and make you choc buttercream.

I'm not an expert maybe someone else can help.

Good luck

to our standard buttercream, we add cocoa, hersey syrup and sometimes some chocolate extract. Just take some of your mixed up vanilla and start from there. icon_smile.gif If the icing is too thick you can alway add a little more milk or water, whichever you use in your original recipe.

we always use butter and alpine shortening in our recipe, so it it great.

hope this helps.

Bettercreme comes in Chocolate. I'd check where you buy the vanilla and see if they carry it.
