Difficulty: Easy
Preparation Time: 10-30 Minutes
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients:
1 1/2 Cup(s) Softened Butter, unsalted
1 Cup(s) Cocoa Powder
5 Cup(s) Confectioner's sugar
1/2 Cup(s)
2 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla extract
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Espresso powder
Directions:
Add cocoa to a large bowl or bowl of stand mixer. Whisk through to remove any lumps.
Cream together butter and cocoa powder until well-combined.
Add sugar and milk to cocoa mixture by adding 1 cup of sugar followed by about a tablespoon of milk. After each addition has been combined, turn mixer onto a high speed for about a minute. Repeat until all sugar and milk have been added.
Add vanilla extract and espresso powder and combine well.
If frosting appears too dry, add more milk, a tablespoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency. If it appears too wet and does not hold its form, add more confectioner’s sugar, a tablespoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency.
