Directions

Add butter, Dutch Cocoa Powder, Black Onyx Cocoa Powder, Madagascar Vanilla Bean Paste, and Pure Espresso Powder to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat on high until well-combined. Reduce speed to low and alternate adding 1 cup powdered sugar and a splash of milk to mixture at a time. After each addition, increase speed until incorporated before reducing speed and repeating. Once full amounts of powdered sugar and milk have been added, beat on high for 2 to 3 min., or until smooth, fluffy, and spreadable.
