Chocolate frosting

Home made chocolate frosting is so much better than store bought in a can. Here’s a basic recipe you can make using ingredients you probably already have on hand.


1⁄4 c butter (melted before measuring)
1⁄3 c milk
1⁄4 t salt
3 c confectioner's sugar (confectioner's sugar)
1⁄2 c cocoa (cocoa powder)


Combine butter and cocoa in a large bowl; beat until well blended.

Add the milk, vanilla and salt. Beat until smooth.

Gradually beat in the confectioner’s sugar until smooth and creamy. Add more milk if you desire a thinner consistency.
