Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kamden and Alyssas

The BEST frosting I have ever tasted, apart from Whiped cream frosting. You can adjust the Amount of sugar to your liking, along with the chocolate, but this worked perfectly for my family and myself. Be sure to sift the sugar and cocoa, although I did not have a sifter I did use a fork and got good results. The whipping cream makes the best fluffy frosting, half&half is second place.

I really enjoyed the flavor. I was out of vanilla and heavy cream so substituted 2Tbs 2tsp sweetened condensed milk and 2Tbs 2tsp skim milk. It was too runny to decorate with though. I could have thickened it up with more cocoa powder and sugar but ran out of time so just covered with It was still a hit! Thanks for the recipe.
