Ingredients:

1 cup salted butter1 (at room temperature)

3 ½-4 cups powdered sugar2

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2-3 tablespoons whole milk, half-and-half, or cream

Directions:

Step 1: Beat butter with an electric mixer for 3 to 4 minutes or until creamy.

Step 2: Add the 3 1/2 cups of powdered sugar, vanilla, 2 tablespoons of milk, and cocoa powder. Beat until well mixed.

Step 3: Add 1 tablespoon of milk if the frosting is dry and powdered sugar if it is too wet.

Notes:

You can use unsalted butter instead of the salted one. Just sprinkle salt to make it a little salty.

Let the butter sit at room temperature as well.

Sift the cocoa powder and powdered sugar if they are grainy.

I use heavy cream because it makes the frosting lighter.
