Almond Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

If you’re in need of a yummy chocolate frosting for cakes, brownies or pastries, here’s one to try!


1 cup salted butter, softened but not melted
3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon almond extract
4 Tablespoon evaporated milk (or milk or heavy cream)

Cream butter for about a minute until smooth.  Sift in the cocoa and powdered sugar (try using a small cullender), blending well with the butter (if you’d like a stiffer frosting, add additional sugar).  Mix in the remaining ingredients until smooth and the desired consistency, about 2 to 3 minutes.  Spread on cooled desserts and enjoy!
Or, you know, just eat straight from the bowl and mixers.
