I too need a good chocolate icing recipe! This is one I bookmarked because she said it was better than the $14 Sprinkles Cupcake Icing, but I haven't ever tried it. It's so difficult to try a new frosting because you risk ruining a cake, lol!
Dark Chocolate Frosting

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

pinch of salt

2 1/2 cups sifted confectioners sugar

1/4 tsp vanilla

3oz bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled to room temperature


In a stand mixer beat the butter and salt on medium speed until fluffy

Turn to low and slowly add confectioners sugar

Mix in vanilla

Turn to medium and add chocolate.

Here's another one from HERSHEY'S (yeah, can you tell that I am recipe surfing tonight, lol)!

1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Melt butter. Stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency. Add small amount additional milk, if needed. Stir in vanilla. About 2 cups frosting.
