1. Mix powdered sugar and butter in medium bowl with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in vanilla and chocolate.
2. Gradually beat in just enough milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar. Frosts 13 X 9-inch cake generously, or fills and frosts an 8- or 9-inch two-layer cake.
Note: To fill and frost an 8-inch three-layer cake, use 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup butter or stick margarine, softened, 3 teaspoons vanilla, 4 ounces chocolate and about 1/4 cup milk.
*Do not use vegetable oil spreads.
