Milk Chocolate Frosting recipe: SORRY - there was a mix up with scheduling and this will be up on Wednesday.

The chocolate frosting recipe is below.
650g / 1lb 7oz Powdered sugar
225g / 8oz Butter, softened (eqv. 2 sticks)
100g / 3.5oz Milk chocolate, melted
30g / 1oz Unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp Vanilla essence
1-2 tbsp Whole milk

Method:
Place softened butter into a mixing bowl
Beat on high speed with an electric mixer (whisk or paddle attachment) for AT LEAST 5 minutes, until the butter has lightened in colour and is thoroughly whipped
Add vanilla essence and beat to incorporate
Add 1 cup of powdered sugar and begin mixing on low speed. Beat on high speed for approx 2 minutes
Repeat this process one cup at a time until all of your powdered sugar has been added
Add cocoa and mix for a further 2 minutes
Use your milk if your mixture becomes too thick or dry - add a dash at a time to thin the mixture out
Scrape down the sides as needed and make sure no white frosting is visible
Carefully melt your milk chocolate using a microwave or double boiler
Take your melted chocolate and quickly add it to your buttercream mixture. Immediately turn the mixer on high and get the chocolate mixing through
