Chocolate Frosting in a Flash

  • Yield 1 1/2 cups

The easiest chocolate frosting we've ever made!


8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup 2% reduced-fat milk


  1. Combine butter and cocoa powder, stirring to combine well. Add vanilla and salt; mix well. Stir in confectioners’ sugar, alternating with splashes of milk. Stir until creamy. If frosting is too thin, add 1 or 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar. Makes 1 1/2 cups frosting.
