In a large mixing bowl, beat the margarine (this can be very therapeutic) until creamy.
Slowly add the cocoa powder and half the milk, mix. Then add the powdered sugar and milk alternately to the cocoa, till used up, mixing well.
Stop the mixer and thoroughly scrape the bowl. Then add vanilla and beat until well mixed and easy to spread.
If it's too stiff, add a small amount of water. Beat and repeat till it's ready to eat!
*For a reduced-fat frosting substitute 4 oz. or 8 tablespoons (113g) of a light buttery spread like Smart Balance®.
Either of these cocoa recipes is delicious.

The spoon's my favorite. A quick bite of dark chocolate to brighten the day. I highly recommend it.
This very deep chocolate dark frosting will make you feel like a kid again waiting to lick the bowl. And you don't even have to share, unless you wanna!
But remember to stop the mixer first. A tongue tangled in the beaters can be a painful thing, not to mention embarrassing!
