  • Dark Chocolate Frosting *again simplified and adapted by me

  • 8

    oz. melted semi-sweet chocolate {I just set a bowl on top of a small pan of boiling water to melt my chocoalte}

  • 1

    tsp. vanilla

  • pinch of salt

  • 2

    c. powdered sugar

  • 2

    TBSP. cocoa powder

  • c. unsalted butter, softened


Stir vanilla, chocolate and salt together until salt dissolves. Beat the butter with electric mixer on medium-high speed until smooth, 30-60 seconds.Reduce speed to med-low, and slowly add powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Beat until smooth 2-5 minutes. Beat in chocolate mixture and increase speed to med-high. Beat until light and fluffy, 4-8 minutes. ***I also used a variation of this recipe to make a peanut butter chocolate cake a few months ago. Make a chocolate cake using the recipe above and then spread with peanut butter frosting
