I have a bucket of Bettercreme frosting, a friend of mine asked if I could make it chocolate. Anyone have any ideas of how to do this? I'm guessing I will need cocoa powder and maybe some melted chocolate chips? TIA!
I put about 1 cup of chocolate ganache into a huge bowl of the bettercreme and whipped it up. Nice, soft, chocolatey good. Color was nice, too. If you don't have ganache handy, I would try a bit of cocoa powder and see how that would work for you.
hershey's chocolate syrup!!! YUM
I would say that Melvira is the Bettercreme queen. She started the following topic which has a gazillion different ways to flavor it:
Thank you so much everyone! I never even thought about ganache, or chocolate syrup! I'll try these and take a look at Melvira's post also. Thanks again!
3/4 c. of Hershey's cocoa powder for every 3 cups of frosting. I would also add a little more flavoring like vanilla and maybe some water a tsp. at a time if the frosting is thick.
Instead of the cocoa powder, you can also use 1 oz (1 square) melted unsweetened baking chocolate. I add a dash or two of cinnamon to give the flavor another dimension.
I've used the melted chocolate before as well. The two taste the same. Sometimes I just don't feel like melting the chocolate though. I guess it's preference.
I've used chocolate pudding mix...
Decisions, decisions, which one to try first? Thank you!
I use cocoa powder I always keep an extra container or chocolate buttercream in the fridge for those late night cravings... SCANDALOUS! :p
I use a good quality semi sweet cocoa powder. I always add a good vanilla when making chocolate buttercream. It enhances the flavor of the chocolate.
Rich's Bettercreme and chocolate buttercream are two different animals.
Here's a product blurb on Rich's Bettercreme (and their other products):
