There are two different ways to enjoy chocolate frosting. One is pure chocolate and cream: the ganache. It is fudgy and decadent. The other is a chocolate buttercream. This is a chocolate buttercream and it is lovely. It is not really fudgy: you can taste the cocoa in it. In fact, it is a little on the semi-sweet side. But I love it. It definitely tastes homemade and you can use it on anything. I love it on a really rich and chocolaty cake because it adds a different layer of chocolate. 4 cups powdered sugar
1 cube butter, softened
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 to 1/2 cup milk, depending on the consistency you desire
Mix the butter, cocoa, and sugar until crumbly. Add vanilla and start adding milk a Tbsp at a time, mixing with each addition. Continue until you like the feel.
