Chocolate Chip Buttercream Frosting

Total Time

This is THE frosting! Never have I tried such a great frosting. I serve this on almost any cake I make and the beaters are ALWAYS licked clean. Sooooo good. This makes enough to frost 1 2 layer cake or a 13x9 pan. You have to try this at least once in your lifetime!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium sized bowl, cream softened butter with an electric mixer.
  2. Thoroughly mix in sugar.
  3. Add vanilla, enough milk to make frosting creamy and smooth. Blend in chocolate chips and frost.

Mmmmm good icing! Used some mini m&ms instead of chocolate chips and used to frost some chocolate cupcakes! Thanks BirdyBaker! :)

This is a great frosting recipe...I had no problem making it very easy, except I used regular size chocolate chips that I already had on hand. Tasted great on top of chocolate cake. The whole family enjoyed the frosting on the cake!! Will use again..Thanks Birdy for posting a great frosting!!

Sorry but I wasn't crazy about this recipe. The icing seemed thin and overly sweet. Maybe it was just me but not one of the better buttercream frosting I have tried.
