Updated Sep 18, 2015

Ingredients

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons milk

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, beat powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed until blended. Stir in vanilla and chocolate.
  • 2
    Gradually beat in just enough milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar. Frosts 13x9-inch cake generously, or fills and frosts an 8- or 9-inch two-layer cake.
