This is the only Chocolate Buttercream Icing you'll ever need! It's the ONLY one I use...although sometimes I make the vanilla buttercream version. They are both delicious! If you need the allergy-free version, check it out here!
3/4 cup Crisco
1/4 cup water
1 pound powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon marshmallow cream
1 1/2 cups cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon powdered vanilla
1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon clear vanilla (to keep icing white!)
1. Blend all ingredients in mixer until smooth and creamy. (start SLOW then speed up as it comes together).
2. To reach desired consistency, add LITTLE bit of water at a time, or LITTLE bit of powdered sugar.
