  • ½ c. cocoa powder
  • 16-oz. powdered sugar
  • 1-2 T. whole milk

Instructions

1

Mix the butter and cocoa powder in a large bowl until well blended.

2

Add the powdered sugar and mix on low-speed until all of the sugar is combined.

3

Stir in milk and vanilla extract, if using, to reach desired consistency.
