i posted a thread about 2 weeks ago where I was trying to add melted chocolate to my buttercream recipe. Well, the last time I added the chocolate in BEFORE I did the ps...TODAY I added the chocolate in AFTER I added the ps....I STILL HAVE THESE SMALL SPECKS OF CHOCOLATE IN THE BC THAT DIDN'T MIX IN!!! icon_cry.gif HOW do I fix it?? I tried to add some more ps and whip it on high but, it's not it because my mixer is old? Because I have those old wisks?? I don't know the reason but I need to fix it!!!

Please help!??? icon_redface.gif

The only thing I can think of is to push it through a mesh strainer to remove the chocolate that didn't melt.

what about heating the mixture just a little to melt the chocolate again?

Your shortening and butter will melt right along with the chocolate.

warm milk added to the bc? that might melt down the chocolate and leave the butter and crisco alone.

Perhaps add a small amount of the bc mixture to the chocolate and mix well? This should bring the chocolate to a normal temp without solidifying anything, or at least I think so? Or maybe mix a bit of the crisco that should be in the icing to the chocolate when melting so that it can't solidify when cooled, then just add to the icing as you are making it...

ok...I really didn't know there were all these other posts...I didn't get any notifications! icon_confused.gif

I heated the mixture a little by little on the stove and then I just kept mixing...IT TASTES GOOD! Not as many speckles in it as before! icon_biggrin.gif
THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR YOUR REPLIES! I am going to print them out for future reference because I really like this recipe I have!
