Chocolate Buttercream Frosting


1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)

½ cup Hershey’s cocoa

1 ½  cups Dominos powdered sugar

Soften the butter in the microwave 10 seconds on defrost mode. Don’t let it melt. Blend butter, cocoa and powdered sugar with a mixer until it forms a pebbly texture.


2 tsp vanilla

2 cups additional powdered sugar

About ¼ cup milk


Add the vanilla and 1 Tbsp milk. Blend well. Alternate adding ¼ cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp of milk until all of the sugar is mixed in. Keep it on the dry side. If it gets shiny, add a little more powdered sugar.


1 Tbsp Crisco shortening


Add the Crisco to make it fluffy and beat on high speed for a minute.


Check the consistency for spreading. If it is too soft, add a tablespoon of powdered sugar and beat well. If it is too stiff, add a teaspoon of milk and beat well.
