Easy Chocolate Frosting


Jake and I celebrated our 14th anniversary while we were out of town this week. D insisted that we have a cake...it's not a party without cake, right?! So, after a hike out to Royal Gorge, building a snowman family, and an epic snowball fight, I whipped this up...

Ingredients
  • 3 C organic powdered sugar
  • ¾ C unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • ¼ to ½ C organic milk
  • splash of red wine

Procedure
Sift together sugar and cocoa. Set aside. Cream together the butter and splash of wine. Add in 1 C of the sugar-cocoa mixture, then 1 T of milk. Mix and repeat until all of the sugar-cocoa has been added. If the frosting is too thick, thin it out with more milk. I ended up using about ½ C milk.

Frost cooled cake immediately. Let set for about 20 minutes before serving.
