How to make it

  • Sift confectioners sugar and sift one more time with the cocoa powder and salt. - Set aside temporarily.
  • Take butter and place in mixing bowl, whip till lighter in color maybe 2-3 minutes.
  • Take and add about 1/3 third of powered sugar which now has the sifted cocoa powder in it, to the mixing bowl. Start mixer slowly at first to avoid sugar cloud coming up from out of the bowl with all that powdered sugar.
  • Increase speed to incorporate well, stop mixer on occasion to scrape sides down with spatula to ensure all butter is incorporated into frosting.
  • Add additional third of powered sugar along with 2 tablespoons of milk or liquid of your choice. Start mixer again to incorporate.
  • Add last third of powdered sugar, and two tablespoons of remaining milk. Start mixer again slowly at first with each addition of powdered sugar, scraping bowl as necessary.
  • If frosting is too stiff for you, you can then add the additional one tablespoon of milk at a time (or liquid you chose to use) - be sure to mix well at high speed to create the creamy texture this frosting is known for.
  • Grab that cake and start frosting away!

    Get frosting cold by chilling it in the refrigerator, and using a little melon scoop, roll a ball of it with your hands, moving quickly. Then roll balls into sifted confectioner's sugar or straight cocoa powder. Let put back into fridge until ready to serve. These melt in your mouth - and are so decadent.
