I already tried a lot of buttercream recipes, and I can assure you that this recipe by Tatyana8217;s Everyday Food is one of the best versions out there. It8217;s chocolatey, luscious, and fluffy. Everything is just perfect 8211; the taste, consistency and color. It8217;s so good that I made tons of cupcakes with this frosting last weekend. It was a total hit, and everybody loved it! Read on or watch the video below for full instructions.
- 2 cups of unsalted butter
- 1/8 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
- 3 cups of confectioner8217;s sugar
Add 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave until smooth. You can also use a double boiler to melt the chocolate. Once melted, set it aside and allow it to cool until it8217;s just lukewarm. Next, add the cooled melted chocolate to the butter and whisk again for about a minute, until it8217;s well incorporated.
Add 3 cups of confectioner8217;s sugar, 1/4 cup of cocoa powder, 1/8 teaspoon of salt, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the chocolate-butter mixture and mix on low speed first. Turn the mixer to high and mix for about 3 to 4 minutes, until fluffy. Make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl to ensure everything is well incorporated. It should have a light, fluffy, and luscious texture.
