Chocolate M&M Frosting
Prep time
Total time
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder, sifted into the bowl
  • 1 cup M&Ms, processed to a coarse dust in the blender
  1. In a stand mixer or with beaters, beat together all of the ingredients on medium-high speed until well-mixed. Spread on cake or cupcakes and eat immediately! M&Ms will be crunchy at the outset but will soften as the frosting sits.
