Chocolate Frosting with Cocoa Powder and Powdered Sugar

I made this to go over a butterfinger pound cake I made.  It is delicious.

Chocolate Frosting with Cocoa Powder and Powdered Sugar
¼ cup butter
⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
⅓ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 and ½ cup confectioners sugar, sifted

  1. Sift sugar.
  2. Heat butter in a small pan on medium heat, do not let butter get brown.
  3. When butter is melted, whisk in cocoa, milk, and vanilla. Add sugar ½ cup at a time, whisking after each addition.
  4. Remove from heat, after all the sugar has been added.
  5. Whisk until smooth.
  6. Immediately pour over cake.
  7. If icing is too thin, add additional sifted sugar ¼ cup at a time until desired thickness or sit it in the refrigerator a few minutes. Take it out and whisk it until creamy again.
  8. Frosting will thicken as it cools, but it'll be harder to spread.
