Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

I made these chocolate avocado cupcakes, but I wasn't sure about the avocado frosting. These were for potluck so I thought maybe chocolate would be the way to go. I compiled from a few different resources to make this recipe.
It tastes delicious!

Overall Grade:

Would I make it again?

Vegan Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
Adapted from The Dainty Squid

2 tbsp vegan margarine
1 1/3 C powdered sugar
1/3 C cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp almond or soy milk

In a medium bowl, soften the vegan margarine. Cream the sugar into the softened margarine using an electric mixer. I did this by slowly adding in the powdered sugar and mixing so it wouldn't make a huge mess everywhere. 
Add in the vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and almond milk. Mix well.

Too thick? Add in more almond milk
Too runny? Add more powdered sugar
