 How to Make Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

 Next, alternately add sugar and milk to the cocoa mixture by adding 1 cup of sugar followed through approximately a tablespoon of milk. After every addition has been combined, flip mixer onto a HIGH pace for approximately a minute. Repeat till all sugar and milk had been added.

 This is important – It makes the frosting into fluffy, scrumptious perfection!

If it seems too moist and does not keep its form, add more confectioner’s sugar, simplest one tablespoon at a time till it reaches the proper consistency.
