This rich and creamy chocolate buttercream recipe is my ultimate go-to when I make our favorite decadent chocolate layer cake. With 5 simple ingredients, this buttercream from scratch can take any cake to the next level.


  • 1 c. unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ c. cocoa powder
  • 16-oz. powdered sugar
  • 1-2 T. whole milk
  • 1 t. real vanilla extract



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


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


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