Quick Chocolate Frosting

Pin It
Here's a super quick and easy Chocolate Frosting recipe for your recipe collection. My usual go-to recipe is Quick Chocolate Buttercream Frosting, and this is basically the same concept. I didn't have any chocolate on hand, so I decided to use cocoa powder instead and it turned out just as delicious. Depending on how you like you frosting, you can add more milk to make the consistency thicker or thinner. This is a great option if you don't have time to run to the store and grab a jar of the pre-made stuff. Enjoy! 

Printable Recipe

  • 2 sticks (16 tbsp.) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Dash of salt
  • 4 tbsp. reduced-fat milk, plus more if desired
In a large bowl, mix butter and cocoa powder with a hand mixer over medium speed. The mixture will be chunky, but will eventually get smooth after a minute or two.

Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract and a dash of salt. Beat with hand mixer until combined. Slowly pour in milk while mixing. If you want a thinner consistency, continue to add milk until it reaches the texture you want.
