Best Chocolate Buttercream

Tonight I made chocolate cake. I found a recipe I wanted to try, but then went a little Sandra Lee and used a box mix. I did however make the chocolate buttercream frosting that was listed with the cake recipe.

Oh my. It was delish.

I've made chocolate buttercreams before, but this one is a KEEPER. It whips up nice and light and it makes a ton. I frosted a Devils Food cake with it and it was definitely "got milk". So if you need a good chocolate buttercream, I highly recommend giving this a try.
