Chocolate Buttercream

Chocolate Buttercream

2 sticks of room temperature butter
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-3 tablespoons heavy cream

Cream together the butter and sugar.  Gradually add the cocoa powder.  It will be grainy and thick at this point.

Add just enough cream to get the consistency for spreading.  Add the vanilla.

You can thank me later for sharing this recipe from Baked Bree. It is the best chocolate frosting recipe I have ever tasted!
