homemade chocolate buttercream frosting.

There are lots of homemade chocolate frosting recipes out there, but this one is by far my favorite!  It's simple, it's easy, and it tastes 50 times better than frosting from a can.

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
1 c. butter
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa
4 c. powdered sugar
3 T. whipping cream
1 1/2 t. vanilla

Cream your butter until smooth.
Add the rest of the ingredients.
Mix until blended.
Add extra powdered sugar in 1/2 c. increments if needed. (Mine was a little runny so I ended up adding an extra cup of powdered sugar.)


(PS - One of my favorite ways to eat this is spread on a graham cracker. :))
