Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Here's a simple Chocolate Buttercream Frosting perfect for cakes and brownies or anything you need to frost with a chocolate icing.  Make sure you sift the cocoa powder because if you don't you'll be left with tiny lumps of bitter cocoa throughout your frosting.  This will not be nice.  You can make this by hand or use your mixer.

 Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
4 cups icing sugar
½ cup cocoa
⅛ teaspoon salt
½ cup soft butter
3-4 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Sift the icing sugar, cocoa and salt together.  In a small bowl, cream the butter with the icing sugar and cocoa adding enough milk to make a spreadable icing.  Add the vanilla.   Spread over the cooled cake.  Makes enough to generously fill and frost a 9-inch cake.
