rich mocha buttercream frosting
a recipe by
This recipe makes enough frosting for a three-layer cake. For a 9x13 pan or two-layer cake, reduce ingredients in half. If you are not a fan of dark chocolate flavor, reduce the Special Dark powder to 1/2 c. instead of one-cup or, replace with regular cocoa powder. NOTE: If you're not a fan of coffee flavor, use warm water instead of coffee for a rich, fantastic chocolate frosting. Very easy and extremely tasty! Enjoy!

How To Make rich mocha buttercream frosting
1In a large bowl, sift together the confectioners powdered sugar and cocoa.
2In large mixing bowl, begin beating the softened butter with 1/3 c. of the coffee until well-blended. (I use my Kitchenaid mixing stand with beater attachment but this works fine in a large bowl using a hand mixer, too).
3Slowly add the dry ingredients and remaining coffee to the creamed butter/coffee mixture. Mix for about a minute then add the Vanilla Extract. Mix for about two-minutes until creamy. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes before frosting.
