Quick Chocolate Frosting


  • 2 sticks (16 tbsp.) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Dash of salt
  • 4 tbsp. reduced-fat milk, plus more if desired

In a large bowl, mix butter and cocoa powder with a hand mixer over medium speed. The mixture will be chunky, but will eventually get smooth after a minute or two.

Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract and a dash of salt. Beat with hand mixer until combined. Slowly pour in milk while mixing. If you want a thinner consistency, continue to add milk until it reaches the texture you want.
