  • 1/2 C butter softened
  • 1 C pecan nut butter check out my instructions on how to make nut butters
  • 1 T milk more or less to taste
  • 2 T bourbon
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • 2 C confectioners' sugar


  • Place the butter and pecan nut butter into a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer.
  • Gradually mix in the sugar and cocoa.
  • When the frosting starts to get thick, incorporate milk and bourbon one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable.
  • Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get good and fluffy.


The color variety in the frostings in the photo comes from using different varieties of chocolate and more or less milk.
