Chocolate Frosting

Chocolate Frosting

This chocolate frosting went perfectly with the white cupcakes that I made last weekend.  It was sweet, chocolaty, fluffy, and creamy- so yummy!  As a finishing touch, I topped the frosted cupcakes with some cute and colorful sprinkles.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Frosting

(print recipe)


  • ½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons heavy cream (plus extra if needed)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. In a work bowl with an electric mixer, cream the butter.
  2. Sift the sugar and cocoa powder together and gradually add to the butter, beating well after each addition.
  3. Add the cream and vanilla and beat until well blended and fluffy.   If frosting is too thick, add more cream, a little bit at a time, beating after each addition until desired consistency is reached.
