I'm sharing with you two things today:
1. My favorite chocolate buttercream recipe and 2. A sweet deal! 🎉
This is the richest and fudgiest chocolate buttercream and it's super easy to make it. I make all of by buttercreams in a stand mixer but for this one, I always use my trusty hand mixer. Here's the recipe:
·3 cups powdered sugar
·3/4 cup Dutch processed cocoa (@valrhonausa is the best)
·1/2 teaspoon of espresso powder
·1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
·1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I use @rodellevanilla always)
·3 to 4 tablepoons of heavy whipping cream
·pinch of kosher salt
In a large bowl, beat the butter and salt on medium speed until it becomes creamy. In a separate bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa and espresso powder. Slowly add in sugar mixture with the butter, mixing on low speed. Alternate between the heavy whipping cream and sugar mixture until it's fully incorporated. Mix on medium-high speed for about 1 minute and make sure not to over whip. This will be a thicker buttercream but you can achieve the desired texture by adding more cream.
These stainless steal measuring cups are from @husmait_home and I love everything about them! The shape, weight and sturdiness make these a gem to bake with and hold accurate measurements. Use code CRASSY21 to get 15% off any purchase at Husmait.Co
