Milk Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

The best milk chocolate buttercream frosting recipe you will even need!

Milk Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

This is my favorite milk chocolate buttercream frosting and it’s so simple to make. It’s my go to frosting that I use on all of my cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and brownies. This frosting is super simple to make, and if you love lots of frosting, just double the recipe.

JUST A FEW TIPS:

✔ I like to use heavy whipping cream because it makes this milk chocolate buttercream frosting thicker. But if you don’t have heavy whipping cream in your fridge, no worries you can use milk instead.

✔ I bought the XL Hershey’s Milk Chocolate candy bar which is 4.4 ounces but if you can’t find the XL Hershey’s Milk Chocolate candy bar you can buy 4  (1.55 oz.) regular sized Hershey’s Milk Chocolate candy bars.
