The Best Mocha Buttercream Frosting / Icing

This is definitely the best frosting I have ever had. I am in love with it! Perfect texture….nothing like store bought! It is wonderful on everything!!!

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 1 1/2 cups

    • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
    • 3 cups powdered sugar
    • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 2 tablespoons instant coffee, dissolved in a splash of hot water


  1. In your mixer, beat the softened butter with the powdered sugar until it is creamy.
  2. Add in the cocoa powder, vanilla extract & coffee.
  3. Beat with the mixer until it’s nice and fluffy (about a minute or 2)
  4. This makes a perfectly spreadable frosting. The nice thing about it is that you can put it in the fridge to make it a little more firm if you would like.
