Default mocha buttercream frosting for the nutella fudge brownies/mini-cupcakes

from Vino Lucci

from the Desserts 4 Today cookbook (where each dessert has only four ingredients!)

Mocha Buttercream Frosting

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 3/4 to 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
1/8 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup warm milk
2 tsp dry espresso or instant coffee

Combine butter, sugar, cocoa and vanilla in a medium bow and mix slowly until everything is moistened.
Combine milk and dried coffee; add slowly to mixture in bowl.
Beat at high speed with an electric mixer until uniform and fluffy.
If necessary, add up to 1/4 cup additional confectioner’s sugar until the mixture is somewhat firm.
Pipe or spread onto the top of cool cupcakes
