HOW TO MAKE 5-MINUTE CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING
To make this delicious frosting, first add the softened butter to a mixing bowl and beat with a paddle attachment until smooth.
Then, add in the sifted cocoa powder and powdered sugar alternating with the heavy cream until well-combined.
Even though this is a creamy chocolate buttercream, it holds its shape beautifully and works great for spreading over cakes or even piping fancy designs!
If your frosting appears too dry, add more heavy cream or whole milk, only one tablespoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency. If it appears too wet and does not hold its form, add more confectioner’s sugar, only one tablespoon at a time until you get your preferred results.
Storing – Place any leftover frosting in an airtight container and place in the fridge for up to 1 week. When ready to use, remove the frosting the fridge and let it sit to room temperature. Then give it a good stir before frosting.
Freezing – This frosting recipe can also be stored in the freezer for up to 2 months. Store in an air tight container and place in the freezer. When ready to use, take out of the freezer and place in the fridge over night. Then proceed as directed above.
