Perfect Chocolate Buttercream Frosting



  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 4½ to 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 Tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • 5 Tablespoons heavy cream or milk, I prefer heavy cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. In a medium bowl combine butter, powdered sugar, cocoa, vanilla, cream/milk, and salt and beat for 5-7 minutes until light and fluffy.
  2. Add more powdered sugar to thicken and stiffen up frosting or more cream/milk to thin frosting out depending on use. If you are frosting cookies or a cake use less powdered sugar.

If you are using the frosting to decorate, use more powdered sugar for a stiffer frosting.
