Fluffy Chocolate Frosting

from Mark & Karen

1 stick butter, softened
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, run through a seive to remove lumps
3 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1/3 cup milk, half-and-half, or cream
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt

Place the butter and cocoa powder in the bowl of an electric mixter.  Blend on low speed until soft and well combined, 30 seconds.  Stop the machine, scrape down the bowl.  Place the confectioners’ sugar, milk, vanilla & salt in the bowl and beat on low speed until the frosting lightens and is fluffy, 2-3 minutes.  Add more milk if too thick, or more sugar, 1 Tablespoon at a time, if too thin.
