Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
One of the best things about hosting a party is that there are always opportunities to make lots of messy dishes, and serve some really tasty sweet treats.
Everyone seems to love my Chocolate Buttercream Frosted Cupcakes so I decided to make a large batch and serve them to my friends and family. These cupcakes are so darn good so I figured I’d share the recipe if there were any inquiring mind out there that wanted to know how to make them!
- 3 cups of sifted confectioners sugar
- 1 pinch of salt]
- 3 tablespoons whole milk
- 2 Sticks on unsalted room temperature butter (allow it to reach this temperature on its own)
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
Add your room temperature butter to your mixer. Mix for 2 minutes until butter is soft, and whipped. Add your salt, cocoa, and slowly add your sugar. If you add it too fast your powder will blow everywhere.Slowly add your milk in. Blend well until all ingredients are mixed for 2 minutes.
Once done, add to a piping bag and frost cooled cupcakes.
