I would like to try to add a "crispy" thin layer of chocolate in combination with my regular chocolate buttercream just to add that little bit of extra something. I've tried it before by simply spreading a thin layer of melted chocolate waiting for it to harden and then spreading the buttercream on top. I've noticed though that the chocolate layer loses its crispiness.

Any suggestion? Plus anyone have a unique and killer chocolate filling? Starting to get bored with fudge, ganache, truffle etc....

Thank you!!!

I've heard of using crushed chocolate chip cokies, thin chocolate mint cookies, or chocolate biscotti in chocolate buttercream. I've tried chopped carmelized pecans in regular buttercream and would think they would be even better in chocolate buttercream! I am going to use Nutella in my buttercream this weekend in a cake - yum!

you can also spread some chopped up heath bars in the filling too, they come already chopped with the choc chip section of the grocery store, adds a nice crunch and toffee filling/
