Can Sugarshack's buttercream be made chocolate? If so, how much and what kind would I use? I LOVE the buttercream - thing chocolate would be AWESOME.

Absolutely! Add cocoa powder or melted chocolate. How much is difficult to say because it's tied to taste and texture. Some people substitute some of the powdered sugar with cocoa.

I substitute the amount of cocoa I want for the powdered sugar. The cocoa can dry out the bc. Also, depending how dark you want it I add chocolate brown gel color it and I add a little bit of chocolate flavoring.
