1. Beat butter on high for about 30 seconds until soft.
2. Add cocoa and 1 cup of sugar and beat until incorporated
3. Add half of the milk and the remainder of sugar and beat until incorporated.
4. Continue to add milk until you get to the consistency you want.

    I have Never made frosting before and this was wonderful! I doubt that I will buy chocolate frosting again. I will know for next time that I will only make 1/2 when making a 9x13 cake. - 2/26/11

    @paulettee1.....pretty annoying comment. Was it necessary? It's all about portion control. As you can see it's for 60 servings. Part of portion control is the art of SELF control. Master that and you can have a taste of a full fat/flavor treat which is actually more satisfying (mentally). - 8/12/10

  • This is the greatest! Its easy and tasty! No more store frosting at my house either! As far as lowfat you can make lowfat cake by using eggbeaters and canola oil in the cake and top it off with this decadent frosting. It is all about portion control. Thanks for the great recipe! - 9/21/11
