Best Chocolate Frosting

Valentine's Day is here and what goes better with Valentine's Day than chocolate?  I found this recipe and it said best chocolate frosting so you know I had to see if they were correct.  It might not be the best but it was one of the easist that I have tried.  Don't get me wrong it is very good.  Very fudgy.  So add a little decoration to it and back up a sweet treat for your Valentine.

A little sprinkles and a heart shaped piece of chocolate is all you need to dress up these cupcakes.  
 The nice thing about this recipe is that you do not have to soften the butter.  That takes planning.
 Take 10 Tablespoons of butter- that is one stick and 2 Tablespoons.
 1 1/4 cup cocoa
 Melt the butter
 Add the cocoa
 Stir it until it is nice and fudgy.
 Now you are going to move to your mixer.  You are going to add 5 1/4 cups of powdered sugar alternately with
 2/3 cup milk
 So I added one cup sugar and the cocoa mixture to the mixer. I added a little milk and continued to do this until it was all added.
 Then I added 2 teaspoons vanilla.  And mixed that well.
 After everything is mixed turn the mixer up and let it whip it for about 5 minutes. Doesn't that look good.
 To make the pretty rose patter in the icing I used a large star tip with a pastry bag.  Start in the middle and swirl around.
Add some heart sprinkles or whatever the occasion might be and  add a heart. Conversation hearts would work too.
