Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
10 mins (prep 10)
5 ingredients
2 servings
A nice, creamy butter frosing. I got this from a Hershey can of cocoa and have made it many times when I want a chocolate frosting. It is extra good and you can regulate the amount of chocolate you have in it. In the recipe below you will find three different amounts of cocoa. You choose what you like--will it be light flavor, medium flavor, or dark flavor? But only use one of the amounts of cocoa.
