I needed my recipe for basic chocolate buttercream today and as I went to look for it on my blog, I realized I haven’t dedicated a post just to this frosting! I didn’t feel like digging through all the recipes to find it, so I made it from memory and decided I needed to share it here with you!
This recipe is so super easy to make, you’d think it took a long time when you taste it though! The ingredients are basic, yet very specific. I use a dark chocolate cocoa powder, heavy cream and a pinch of salt. These three ingredients (versus regular cocoa powder, milk and no salt) really take this buttercream to the next level.
I’ve used this recipe for cakes, cookies, cupcakes… anything really! It’s so yum!
