Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
Delicious chocolate frosting!
Delicious chocolate frosting!
This is so delicious!! I've done a lot of baking but never tried a homemade buttercream. (So many recipes call for shortening! Yuck!) This is light years better than tub frosting and so quick and easy. I used instant espresso instead of coffee (because that is what I keep on hand) and Lindt Sweet Dark chocolate. The espresso adds a wonderful depth of flavor. Thanks for the recipe. I will never buy chocolate frosting again.Read More

Very good, fairly easy, and rich frosting. I used this on a black magic cake for an existential chocolate experience.
This was a very nice & easy frosting...it pairs well with the Nairobi Chocolate cake & I'm sure will be a big hit at the scout bake sale. I made according to recipe, but for personal use, I would decrease the sugar by 1 cup...but that's pretty typical of us, I do the same on our cream cheese frosting for Italian Cream Cake, we just don't like our frosting so sweet!
Easy recipe to play with. I decreased the coffee at the end and added vanilla. It was great! Just what I was looking for. I WILL use this recipe, again.
This is a deep chocolate frosting which any dark chocolate lover will enjoy. I used the dark chocolate "Endangered Species" bar and Dunkin Donuts decaf coffee which made a fairly rich, deeply satisfying frosting. The cupcake paled in comparison. I will certainly make it again though this was too much frosting for 12 cupcakes.
Made to recipe and it was perfect. Don't be afraid to use strong coffee - worked well. Super simple to make with a super deep chocolate taste. My new go to for chocolate frosting!
The consistency was perfect - I used seedless raspberry jam between two chocolate layers then used this frosting on sides and top. It was delicious- the cake was from this site "too much chocolate cake"
SOOOOOO good! Got so many compliments on this frosting. Thank you for sharing.
This was very good. Spreads on cake easily too.
Rich chocolate flavor. Nice dark color. This recipe allows you to adjust the sweetness to your taste. Remember to: Sift cocoa powder. Sift 2-1/2 C confectioners sugar. IT coffee 3-4T cream, add 1 tsp vanilla.Pinch of salt.Nice dark smooth buttercream frosting. Just enough for 8” round three layer cake
So delicious, light, and fluffy. I really like the hint of coffee flavor.
Made exactly by recipe. Delicious!
i made this and used a spatula for the mixing instead of a mixer and it did not mix well definitely use a mixer
My family's favorite chocolate frosting recipe - easy, dense and fudge-like! It wouldn't be a birthday cake at my house without this frosting on top.
It was good, but a little too bitter for my liking, so I modified it by adding another tbs butter, 1 c Extra confectioners sugar, and 2 tsp vanilla. And it made it more to my family’s liking
Amazing! I didn’t change of thing, and frosted a yellow cake with it! It was so good! Tonight, I’m planning on making brownies just so I can use this frosting again.
