Recipe: Chocolate Frosting

This is my go-to recipe whenever I want to make chocolate frosting. It's also easy to adapt to be vegan.

Chocolate Frosting:
1 cup (250g) butter or margarine
1/4 cup (25g) cocoa
6-8 cups (1000g) powdered sugar
about 1/4 cup (60mL) milk or milk alternative
 First, cream the butter until light and fluffy.
 Then add the cocoa powder. At this point, it will look delicious, but it's not yet. There's not sugar in it yet, so it's very bitter still.
 Add the first quarter of the powdered sugar. It will probably be very dry at this point.
Add a tablespoon or two of milk whenever this happens and mix it up.
 Keep adding the powdered sugar in fourths until it's all incorporated, adding milk whenever it gets dry or too thick to help it get to the right consistency.

 In the end, it should look something like this.
 It's lovely, chocolatey and creamy. Yum!
