Dark Chocolate Buttercream


Hello people!

Here's a lovely buttercream recipe featured on the Chocolate Caramel Popcorn Cake. This is a particularly thick icing because it uses melted dark chocolate and is cocoa powder-free. You can make it with a mixer or by hand! Make sure the chocolate is completely cooled before mixing in the butter.


Ingredients

1 cup dark chocolate morsels
1 cup butter (2 sticks) softened to room temperature
2-3 cups icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cream

Preparation


  1. Melt the chocolate morsels, and wait until completely cooled.
  2. Beat together the chocolate and butter until completely incorporated. Sift in the icing sugar in small increments, and beat until thick and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla and cream.
  3. Spread on a cake and enjoy!
Happy baking!
