Chocolate Marshmallow Fluff Frosting

I do love marshmallow fluff frosting.  I'm not really a fan of any other kind, actually. It's just so light and fluffy.  But sometimes it's nice to have a bit of chocolate frosting as well, and this works nicely for those times when you don't want a heavy chocolate frosting (like whipped chocolate ganache), but a lighter one.

For these, I just used the Betty Crocker GF yellow cake mix. I don't like the Betty Crocker GF chocolate cake mix, but the yellow is nice, especially paired with chocolate marshmallow frosting! Oh, and my son put on the sprinkles - hence the copious amounts of them on each cupcake.

Chocolate Marshmallow Fluff Frosting

1 cup butter
Add by ½ cups the following:
½ cup cocoa powder
1 ½ - 2 cups powdered sugar
1 – 2  tsp. vanilla
1 - 2 cups (8 - 16 oz) marshmallow fluff (2 cups = fluffiest icing)

Allow frosting to beat 2-3 minutes, scraping occasionally, until nice and smooth and fluffy.  Depending on whether I'm spreading with a knife or piping onto something, I add more/less powdered sugar, vanilla and/or fluff. You'll have to play around, but it'll be delicious with any/all variations of amount!
You can spread with a knife, scoop into a ziploc and snip the corner and pipe, or put in a proper icing bag with tips and use like you would buttercream frosting. 

Is she not adorable!? This was her first birthday... and first look at a proper cupcake, slathered in sprinkles.
