I have tried SO many different kinds of chocolate frosting, so I decided to combine a few of my favorites to make this one! It turned out really good and was thick enough to use to decorate/frost cupcakes!
1/2 c. butter, softened
2 2/3 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. whipping cream (Half & Half or Whole Milk would work too)
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
Cream the butter in a small bowl. Blend in the cocoa powder, vanilla, confectioners sugar, alternately with the cream. Beat with an electric mixer, until the desired texture is achieved.
