Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting


  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate

  • 1/2 pound unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 4 cups powdered sugar

  • 4 tablespoons milk

  • 3 teaspoons vanilla


Melt chocolate in microwave, checking after each 30 second interval to make sure you do not burn the chocolate.  Stir and let cool.

Using the paddle attachment on a Mixmaster or using a hand beater, beat the butter and chocolate together until smooth.  Add 2 cups of the sugar and 2 tablespoons of the milk.  Cream these ingredients until well blended.  Add the rest of the sugar and the milk and combine.  Add the vanilla and mix in.
