If I buy my buttercream and I want to make it chocolate How can I do this. Are can I do this???
It would be better if you made your b/c yourself, then just take out 1/2 cup of ps and exchange it for cocoa powder, some ppl use melted chocolate, so check out othe recipes on this site, there are some great ones. HTH
Thanks, I have already buy 7 ilbs of it.. so I need to figure out how to make it chocolate...
Just giving you a bump!
Thanks.. Someone must know how to do something.....
I agree with tirechic...I just make my own and substitute some cocoa powder in for PS.
Melissa.. you can add melted (unsweetened) chocolate to your pre-made buttercream. It usually comes in 1 ounce squares. I usually add about 3 ounces per pound of buttercream. You can add more if you want it darker or more "chocolatey". It may tend to make your buttercream stiffer, but you can add a little milk/water to bring the consistency back.
Just add Hershy coco powder and be prepared to add some liquid , You may experience what I call over whipping that can over beat your icing or the other side turn your icing into a craming version that may be to soft. Add powdered coffee creamer and one cup of boiling water together and use as your liquid. I would start with only a small amount of icing and coco to see how its going to do , I have played around with premade icing before to change the flavor but the texture never is the way I want . I always have had to add more powdered sugar or shortening to get this meathod to work . Good luck
