Chocolate Frosting...Because it is a Chocolate Kind of Day!
The boys and I baked some goodies today. I made my favorite recipe of chocolate frosting to go over our brownies. It is the absolute best chocolate frosting ever and goes well over both cakes and brownies! We love it!
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup crisco
3-4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cups baking cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4--1/2 cup milk
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and crisco so is completely smooth. It helps to soften the butter and crisco a little bit in microwave. Add vanilla and mix well. In separate bowl whisk together cocoa and powdered sugar. Slowly add to large mixing bowl adding a little at a time to butter mixture. Add enough milk until frosting reaches spreading consistency.
