Mint Buttercream Frosting

I used this recipe to make frosting for the Mint Chocolate Cupcakes that I made and it was awesome!

Mint Buttercream Frosting


Ingredients:
  • 1 stick of butter (softened to room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup of shortening
  • 2 tbsp of mint extract
  • 4 cups of powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp of cold milk
  • 2-4 drops of green food coloring (optional)
Directions:
  1. Cream the butter and shortening together with a mixer.
  2. Add the mint extract and combine well.
  3. Slowly add the powdered sugar to the butter/shortening/extract mixture, taking breaks to mix it in with the mixer. 
  4. After all the sugar has been added, add the milk one tablespoon at a time, combining well with the mixer after each addition.
  5. Finally add the green food coloring and mix until the frosting is the desired consistency and color.
