can you not get the chocolate in bulk? there's a fudge chocolate product--kinda tastes like tootsie roll and you can add that to white buttercream--one bakery i worked at had the neighborhood hooked on it--we sold boatloads of  pecan thumbprint cookies with a big rosette of that choco on it--they're real good--

 

it's a heavy thick fudgey chocolate product--a very common product--it's great to outline drawings with too--

 

it's like commercial ganache--you can heat it and pour it on cakes & stuff--

Just add cocoa to it.

If cocoa doesn't make it chocolaty enough for you, try adding some melted chocolate as well.

Before I add my Hersheys cocoa to American Buttercream I put it in a pyrex bowl and add just enough boiling water to be able to wet all of the cocoa powder and stir it well.  Then I let it cool to room temp.

 

It's probably just my ice cold brain talking here, but I think it gives a slightly nicer texture, aroma, and taste.

If nothing else, it will help it mix in nice and smooth :) I do the same, but with coffee... I may have slight caffeine addiction.
