Whipped Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Have you ever whipped your Chocolate Buttercream Frosting?  Try replacing the milk with heavy cream for a much lighter texture.

I make Chocolate Buttercream Frosting a lot to top cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and even brownies.  

It is easy to make, extremely delicious, and the best part of the cake.  Chocolate Buttercream is a must on birthday cakes.  It makes them that more special.  This time I decided to replace the milk with heavy cream to make it lighter and fluffier.  It had the same great taste, but it truly was lighter.  It was also a little lighter in color.  I will be adding heavy cream from now on to make my chocolate buttercream lighter and creamier.
