Yep! I just use chocolate syrup. Just like you're makin chocolate milk. Add it before you whip.

Make sure you get the pink and white carton it says bettercreme ( I think 32oz) NOT the prewhipped topping !

I buy Rich's Bettercreme in Chocolate at Smart and Final. I have not been able to find Rich's Bettercreme in Vanilla or plain. The chocolate is good. I like it much better than Pastry Pride. I like the Frostin' Pride so much better than the Pastry Pride. Good to know that you can "dress up" the regular bettercreme with flavors!

You have to be careful not to over whip or it will get dry, with lots of air. I put it in my KA on about 5 for about 9 min and 50 sec. You have to watch it as it gets close.

I mixed a little cocoa powder in after it was mixed and it worked pretty good! (although I can never get it smooth either!) icon_wink.gif

Yes, that is the stuff they use. My Wedding Cake class Chef is a rep for Rich's. She is also a memeber here. So it's her fault I'm here icon_biggrin.gif. She told me to keep it as cool as possible when using.

Non perishable is the word on that stuff. I don't even think fruit flies will bother it. LOLOL.

LMAO

I never even have questions from customers on this stuff... there must be different areas of the country that get requests for this ... just not popular here I don't guess
