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.

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.
