Sorry, my search does not work . I need to make this chocolate. Does anyone know how much choc to add and what kind? TIA
I looked up all the recipes that IndyDebi submitted and she has only submitted the regular buttercream recipe.
Maybe you could PM her and ask what she does to make it chocolate.
thanks, i will do just that.
I normally start with about 1/2 c of cocoa mixed into my butter/shortening (if heat isn't an issue, I like Debi's recipe with 50/50 butter/shortening .. just because I like butter ). You can add more cocoa, melted chocolate, LorAnn chocolate flavoring, chocolate syrup/ice cream topping ... just keep working with it until you have what you are looking for. I almost always use coffee for the liquid in my chocolate icings. You can't taste it, but it intensifies the chocolate flavor.
Actually, I went back to my PM from Debi when I asked her the same question and here is what she said ... I have made it in chocolate. Remember, I'm a "till it looks right cook" so I'll apologize in advance for no measurements, but I just add a mixture of Hershey Chocolate syrup and Hershey Cocoa (liquid and powder to offset each other) until I get the flavor/color/consistency that I need.
You may as well have the answer from the true source!
