3 c. Powder sugar, 1/2 stick melted butter,2/3 c. Hersheys Special Dark powder, 1/3 c. Milk (as needed for desired consistency), 1 t. Vanilla.
Stir cocoa into melted butter and alternately add powdered sugar and milk. Add vanilla.

Baked and frosted my way through most of The Cake BIble and found RL Beranbaum recipes tasty, beautiful and easy to follow, including the buttercreams. Any one of hers is bound to be good.
Here's a google swipe that gives you classic chocolate buttercream, a white chocolate version, a milk chocolate version and more.
I'll see if I can get a copy of The Cake Bible from the library. I'm making a birthday cake for a friend and I don't have a go-to recipe. Thanks for the recommendation.

Not exactly a buttercream, but it's my go-to chocolate frosting and it's dang good:
This frosting is what I use on my chocolate chocolate cake that EVERYONE asks me to make. Personally I think it's even better with dark chocolate.
