This easy recipe for gluten free chocolate buttercream frosting is the best! It is homemade with powdered sugar and milk whipped together. The results is a simple frosting that is rich and fluffy.
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
1/3 cup Milk
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
4 cups Powdered Sugar
In the bowl of your mixer beat together the room temperature butter, sifted cocoa powder, milk and vanilla until well combined and without lumps.
Add one cup of sifted powdered sugar at a time to the butter mixture. Mixing completely before adding the next cup of sifted powdered sugar. I like to use four cups, but you may want a thinner frosting to use for cake filling and would want to use less powdered sugar.
