I did not come up with this recipe myself. It can be found on the back of every Nestle Toll House Baking Cocoa box. It is the same recipe my mother made when I was a child. It is hard to keep your fingers off of the bowl!
- 3 cups sifted powdered sugar
- 2/3 cup cocoa
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
- 5-6 tbl milk
- 1 tsp GF vanilla
Beat 1 cup of sugar, cocoa, butter, vanilla and 2 tbl of milk in a small mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in remaining sugar and milk until smooth.
Sometimes my family adds some peanut butter to the frosting. When we do we usually add 1/2 to 1 cups of peanut butter. You might need to add another 1/2 cup of sugar depending on the consistency you prefer. Enjoy!!
