Homemade Chocolate Frosting
Recipe type: Dessert
This Homemade Chocolate Frosting recipe is super easy and packed full of flavor. It beats the canned kind anytime - I promise you'll love it!
  • 8 tbsp. (1 stick) butter, room temperature
  • ⅔ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted, plus additional (if needed)
  • ⅓ cup whole milk, plus additional (if needed)
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  1. Blend the butter and cocoa powder in a large bowl on low speed (very important or you will have cocoa powder all over you and your kitchen!!) until the mixture is soft and well combined, about 30 seconds.
  2. Stop the mixer and place the confectioners’ sugar, ⅓ cup milk, vanilla and salt in the bowl and beat again on low speed until the frosting lightens and is fluffy, about 2 – 3 minutes.
  3. Add more milk if the frosting is too thick or confectioners’ sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, if the frosting is too thin.
  4. Spread on the cake or cupcakes of your choice.
  5. Enjoy!
