Chocolate Buttercream Frosting


1-16 oz. package of confectioners sugar (less 6 Tbsp.)
6 Tbsp. Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2-3 Tbsp. milk (may need to add a bit more, as necessary, for proper spreading consistency)
pinch kosher salt


In a large mixing bowl, with whisk beater attached, beat butter. Then add remaining ingredients and continue beating until well blended, and the frosting is a good spreading consistency. Spread on cooled cakes and cupcakes. (makes enough for 24 cupcakes).
