Amazing Crusting Chocolate Buttercream


Have tried several chocolate buttercream recipes and haven't been sold on any of them... Maybe because I'm not a big fan of buttercream in general... anyway, had to make a last minute cake with chocolate buttercream filling and icing... so I just started throwing things in the mixer. It turned out beautifully and my family is now eating the icing by the spoonful. Add 1/2 cup of peanut butter and you have an amazing chocolate peanut butter icing or filling... If using as a filling, chop up some peanut butter cups and sprinkle on top of the filling once you've put it on the cake and it's beyond belief!

Crusts very well, does not need to be refrigerated.


6 sticks or 3 cups of salted butter (softened)
3 tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa powder (special dark for a darker frosting)
1 bag of Ghiradelli 60% cacao dark chocolate chips (melted)
2lbs (1 bag) of confectioner’s sugar
