Easy Dark Chocolate Frosting

This is an all around great chocolate frosting. I've been making it since I was a kid. It is easy to make in a matter of minutes. Put all the ingredients into a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. You can adjust the stiffness easily by adding more milk or more sugar depending on the fix you need. The frosting will set to be firm to the touch. Travels great and holds over a couple of days without refrigeration.

Use the darkest cocoa you can find for intense flavor that isn't too sweet. And, for frostings, always use stick margarine or butter, unsalted. The more this is beat the lighter it will get go don't stop short. This is also a very easy to use frosting with basic cake decorating skills.

And that is how you make Kosher Easy Dark Chocolate Frosting
