Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Michelle found this great recipe for chocolate frosting.  She already posted the cake recipe, which was to die for.  I wanted the frosting recipe on this blog, too, because I use it a lot.  It is really good.


Creamy Chocolate Frosting
2 3/4 cup powdered sugar
6 T. cocoa powder
6 T. butter
5 T. evaporated milk or half and half
1 teaspoon vanilla

Sift the sugar and cocoa into a bowl.  In another bowl cream the butter until smooth, then gradually beat in the sugar alternately with the milk.  Then beat in the vanilla.  Beat until very light and fluffy.  You can add more sugar or milk to get the right consistency.
