Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

I found this, the most perfect recipe for dark, rich chocolate buttercream. This is officially the only chocolate buttercream I will use from now on.


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
  • 2/3 cup Cocoa
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Cream butter until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes). Stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency.
  • Add small amount additional milk, if needed. Stir in vanilla.
  • Makes about 2 cups frosting.
