Does anyone have any good chocolate butter cream recipes they would suggest using? I was going to just add some cocoa into my recipe I normally use but wanted to see what everyone uses also.

Thanks!

I make my regular buttercream recipe (1 package salted butter with a bit more than 2/3 cup shortening creamed, add vanilla, add 5 tablespoons whipping cream, 1 tablespoons light corn syrup and two pounds of powdered sugar - adjust for thickness etc.) then I microwave about a 1/4 cup chocolate chips with a spoonful of shortening, then add that in to my buttercream.

I could eat that stuff by the spoonful! ...actually.. i do.

1 c butter (i use salted)
1 c shortening (i use store brand w/ 2.5g trans fat)
2 lbs p. sugar
1/2 c cocoa powder

After the fats have been beaten to death, I add the sugar and cocoa, then keep mixing w/ Chocolate milk (plain milk w/choco syrup works too) until it's the proper consistency. It is SO GOOD! It crusts too.

wow these are great recipes, can I use them for plain BC, my family doesn't like shortening. If I can't use the above recipes does anyone have any good BC recipes w/o shortening?
