Way Yummy Chocolate Frosting

Because I feel the need to share chocolate frosting with the world right now;
here is my favorite recipe that I've tweaked to my satisfaction:
(And really, you can't fudge this up!)  Har har! 

Chocolate Frosting
1/4 cup Butter Flavor Crisco (or melt some margarine)
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup milk
3 1/2 cups confectioners sugar

In a large bowl, beat shortening, cocoa powder, vanilla, and milk with an electric mixer until creamy.  Add the powdered sugar in increments until you get the consistency of frosting that you like.  (I like mine fudgey, thank you very much.)  You can also cut back on the sugar and add more cocoa if you like it more chocolatey and less sweet.  This recipe is enough to easily frost 24 cupcakes.  Or you can put it on graham crackers.  Or you can just eat it right out of the bowl.  Whatever trips your trigger.  Enjoy!
