a cooking blog from one foodie to another... I rarely if ever use real measurements... my recipes are more like guidelines... but along the way we usually land on something kinda delectable...

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Okay, this is HANDS DOWN my favorite frosting recipe so far. It is yummy and fairly easy to do.

1 cup softened butter [cream it in mixer]
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar [add it slowly to the creamed butter]
1/2 cup cocoa powder [again add it slowly... if you don't you will have clouds of chocolate ALL over your kitchen!]
2 tsp vanilla
4 Tbsp heavy cream

[one caveat:  because of the butter and cream in this, you MUST refrigerate frosted cupcakes and any leftover frosting]
