Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

This is seriously the best chocolate frosting I've ever had.  The fudge sauce makes it much more creamy. I doubled the recipe for a cake, and froze the leftovers-after hardened, you wouldn't even know it was frosting;it tasted just like fudge!

1/2 cup Butter
1/4 cup Shortening
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups confectioners sugar
2 Tbsp milk
1 cup hot fudge topping  (I used Hershey's)
1 tsp vanilla extract

-Cream together the butter and shortening.
-Sift the cocoa powder and the confectioners sugar and add to the creamed mixture. Mix together adding 1 Tbsp of milk at a time to keep smooth.
-Add fudge sauce and vanilla and mix until smooth and creamy.
