Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Prep: 5 mins
Frosts 1 large cake or 24 cupcakes
Serves 12

This frosting is so delicious, I can eat it with a spoon and absolutely love it on top of the Chocolate Blackout Cupcakes.  This rich, creamy, chocolatey frosting is the perfect topping for anything needing an extra kick of sweet chocolate.  It only takes 5 minutes to whip up and stores well in the fridge for days.  The Madagascar Vanilla Bean paste is SO good in this recipe but regular vanilla extract works just fine as well.  If you want this frosting to set up more firm, simply substitute melted coconut oil for part of the plant milk and it will harden to firm in the fridge after a few hours.
