In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in cocoa and vanilla. Place icing sugar in a large bowl. Pour in cocoa mixture. Beat well (mixture will be extremely thick). Beat in milk, a teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency is achieved.
Terrible. I'm not sure where the picture came from but my frosting looked nothing like this. The final colour was a pale brown and I had to add food colouring and additional cocoa powder to make it darker. It wasn't very rich or chocolaty. I would not recommend. - 20 Apr 2013
Terrible. Mine came out a pale brown. Wish I had have read the comment above before I bothered. Can't make another so will have to cover the cake with smarties. Lucky its for an 8 year old. - 24 Apr 2015
