Chocolate Buttercream Frosting:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter (salted, or unsalted)
1/2 cup Crisco shortening
1/4 teaspoon salt (if using unsalted butter)
3 – 4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 Cup unsweeted cocoa powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
* In the bowl of an electric mixer, mix softened butter and crisco together.
* Add salt (if needed).
*In a small bowl, mix the cocoa and oil together to create a paste. Add this to the butter & crisco.
* One cup at time, add 2-3 cups of powdered sugar, beating after each addition.until the consistency you want is reached. If you want to pipe the frosting on cupcakes, the frosting should be nice and thick. Continue to beat another minute or so. The frosting should now be smooth and fluffy.
