Step 1

Cream together butter, cocoa powder and salt. Add powdered sugar, then milk and vanilla. In a separate bowl whisk together heavy cream and hot chocolate mix. Slowly add to frosting until you’ve reached the desired consistency (I used about ¾ of the mixture). Will frost one dozen cupcakes or one (two layer) cake.
