Chocolate Ermine Frosting
- 1 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour*
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
- 2 sticks (16 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
- 1/4 cup sweetened cocoa powder

- Place sugar, milk, flour, and salt into a heavy bottom pan. Whisk to combine. Heat pan over medium heat and cook until you have a thick, paste like consistency, stirring frequently. About 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla bean paste.
- Transfer mixture to a glass bowl. Place saran wrap over mixture and allow to come to room temperature.
- Add butter and cocoa powder and cream until light and fluffy using whisk attachment.
- Gradually add milk mixture into butter and whip until light and fluffy.
