Creamy Chocolate Frosting

This frosting is smooth, creamy and not-too-dark and perfect for chocolate lovers. It will frost, but not fill, an 8 or 9 inch layer cake.


12 servings


2 3/4 cups confectioners' (powdered) sugar
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
6 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a medium bowl, sift together the confectioners' sugar and cocoa, and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter until smooth, then gradually beat in sugar mixture alternately with evaporated milk. Blend in vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy. If necessary, adjust consistency with more milk or sugar.
