Perfect Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Today’s post is dedicated to my dear friend Joan of the blog Chocolate Chocolate and More. Last week, my sweet friend Joan passed away of a heart attack in her sleep. She was in her late 40s and still so full of life. This tragic event has left me, the blogging community and of course her family in devastation. She left behind 3 cute kids, which as a mother of 3 myself, complete tugs and pulls at my heartstrings all the more. Her death came as a complete shock and to be quite honest, I am still in shock about it. Joan was such a tremendous part of the food blogging community and was always the first to extend her hand in her knowledge and friendship. She was such a kind person and really made it a point to make everyone feel like a good friend of hers. Its so crazy to me, that someone I have only had online interaction with through this crazy blogging journey, could become such a dear and wonderful friend of mine. Joan was among the greats and will be terribly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her and by those who enjoyed her fabulous recipes.

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 4½ to 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 Tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • 5 Tablespoons heavy cream or milk, I prefer heavy cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  1. In a medium bowl combine butter, powdered sugar, cocoa, vanilla, cream/milk, and salt and beat for 5-7 minutes until light and fluffy.
  2. Add more powdered sugar to thicken and stiffen up frosting or more cream/milk to thin frosting out depending on use. If you are frosting cookies or a cake use less powdered sugar.

If you are using the frosting to decorate, use more powdered sugar for a stiffer frosting.
