Chocolate Buttercream Frosting Recipe - Just 5 minutes
A good chocolate buttercream frosting can be a dream over cupcakes, cake, and desserts. Especially when it's light, fluffy with just the right amount of chocolate. Today I share with you my secret to making the best chocolate buttercream recipe with this step by step video tutorial.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 12 Cupcakes
- 228 grams Unsalted Butter (2 sticks)
- 375 grams Powdered sugar
- 60 ml Fresh cream
- 100 grams Chocolate
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 tbsp Vanilla
Melt chocolate in the microwave or double boiler - set aside to cool.
Make sure the butter is room temperature not cold.
Use a whisk or mixer and cream the butter for a minute.
Add salt, fresh cream and vanilla - mix a minute longer, until well combined.
Now add the powdered sugar one cup at a time.
Once all the powder sugar has been incorporated.
Continue to mix for 2 to 3 minutes more until you have a light and fluffy buttercream.
The cream in the mixture will whip and give you almost stiff peaks.
Tip: If you do not whip enough the buttercream will be soft consistency which may not be pipeable. So whip until you have a stable whipped cream kinda light and fluffy frosting. (See video)
Lastly, add the melted cooled chocolate to the buttercream and stir well to combine.
