I had to work today so I didn’t prepare my usual Christmas dinner. However, I was craving a chocolate cake. I am a fan of this chocolate buttercream icing so I decided to share the recipe for the icing with you. You can use it on a vanilla cake, or white cake. I just so happen to love chocolate.
Chocolate Buttercream Frosting!
1 1/2 cups of butter(room temperature )
3 3/4 cups white powdered sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 -5 tbsp half and half
In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip the butter on moderately high speed until fluffy. Sift in cocoa powder, then add powdered sugar, 3 tbls half and half and vanilla. Mix on low speed until combined. Scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. You can mix in up to 2 additional tbls of half and half if desired. Increase mixer to med – high and whip until fluffy.
And of course I love shopping on Amazon. I have been wanting a Blue Jean skirt..
