Ingredients

  • 3

    cups sifted confectioners’ sugar

  • 1/2

    cup (1 stick) softened butter

  • 2

    teaspoons vanilla extract

  • Nestle Choco Bake Unsweetened Baking Chocolate Flavor

  • 1

    envelope (1 oz.) for Light Buttercream

  • 2

    envelopes (2 oz.) for Medium Buttercream *

  • 3

    envelopes (3 oz.) for Dark Buttercream

  • Approximately 1/4 cup milk or cream

Directions

In large mixer bowl, blend confectioners’ sugar, butter, vanilla extract and desired amount of Nestle Choco Bake unsweetened baking chocolate flavor. Gradually beat in milk, one tablespoon at a time, beating until frosting is of smooth spreading consistency. (I find that beating longer makes the frosting nice and fluffy; it covers the cake better and it is not so sweet.) Makes about 2 cups of frosting. *I made the medium buttercream for the cake in the lounge. Nestle Choco Bake can be difficult to find. I am able to find it in Safeway during the holidays and I think Wegmans carries it year-round.
