Chocolate Frosting

This is the perfect frosting to use on the Mississippi Mud Cake as well as on top of sugar cookies. 

6 Tb. butter, softened
3/4 c. cocoa
2-2/3 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk(or more as needed)
1 tsp vanilla

In a small bowl cream the butter.
Add cocoa and powdered sugar alternately with the milk.
Beat to spreading consistency.
More milk may be needed to achieve the correct consistency.
Blend in the vanilla.

Makes 2 cups frosting.

For the Mississippi Mud Cake frosting I used this recipe only with 2/3 cup of milk because I like the frosting to be a little less thick and a bit more pourable!
