Chocolate Buttercream

Chocolate Buttercream

A simple recipe for simply the best chocolate buttercream frosting! This recipe yields a silky smooth, ultra chocolate-y, luscious and fluffy buttercream! To give this frosting the best flavor, I use a combination of melted chocolate and cocoa powder. If you need to use this frosting for piping, this recipe will work beautifully! This frosting holds its shape very well. This recipe is great for frosting cakes and cupcakes. You can use it with chocolate cake, vanilla cake, or whichever cake your heart desires!

My chocolate buttercream recipe is part of my ‘Back To Cake Basics’ series! In this series, I’m sharing basic cake, frosting and filling recipes that you can use for all your baking needs. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to create this series because sometimes, you just need a basic recipe that simple and straightforward. If you need a frosting recipe, I’ve got you cover with several options! If you need a killer-good home-made caramel sauce, I’ve got you covered, too!

I love these smooth and fluffy dollops of frosting! This buttercream holds its shape so well! I used Ateco tip number 847 for these pretty dollops.
