use twice as much powdered sugar as butter - ie : 20oz ps to 10oz butter. a bit of milk for consistancy.
to make it chocolate, just add as much cocoa powder as it takes to get it chocolatey enough.

You can also add chocolate syrup, it's delicious.

I use the Chocolate Syrup Frosting from the recipe section here and just add more powdered sugar. I also use the Hershey's Special Dark Choc syrup. It is heavenly.
