Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kerry Leigh in NC

Very easy! Originally got the recipe on the back of a powdered sugar box. This is my family's favorite frosting. They won't let me buy frosting anymore. Chocolate balanced by lovely creaminess. Don't be fooled by the light brown color, the flavor is very chocolatey.

Not very good

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat all ingredients on low to start until butter is incorporated. Then increase beating speed to med-low to thoroughly mix. Mix until smooth and fluffy.
  2. After beating, if your frosting doesn't seem easily spreadable, add more milk slowly by tablespoons (mixing in between additions).
  3. Note: 1/2 tsp of other extracts may be added to suit your cake. We love to add orange extract to spread on a chocolate or yellow cake.
