Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
This simple Chocolate Buttercream Frosting recipe is sinfully delicious! It comes out perfectly smooth, creamy and fudge-y every time!
Place the butter in the bowl of a stand mixer. Whip for 1-2 minutes, or until the butter is light and fluffy. Then add whipping cream, salt, and vanilla. Mix until combined. Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. Mix until fully combined and the mixture forms almost stiff peaks.
Melt the chocolate by placing it in a microwave-safe dish and microwaving it in 30 second intervals until it is melted. Stir extremely well between each interval.
Allow the chocolate to cool, but not so much that it hardens again. Add to the frosting mixture and stir until combined.
