AI use this for my chocolate buttercream and love it. It's a very rich deep chocolate, and in my opinion butter & cocoa powder matter. I use European style butter & Valrhona powder but regular unsalted & Hershey's will work.

2 sticks softened unsalted butter 3 1/2 cups of powdered sugar 1/2 cup of cocoa powder 2-6 tablespoons of butter 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla A pinch of salt

Whip the butter for a min or so on medium speed. Soft the confectioners sugar and cocoa powder together then add to the butter. Beat on slow until the sugar is mixed with the butter. Add in vanilla and milk as needed to thin. Whip on medium high for 5 mins to make fluffy. You might need to add a bit more milk at the end. Just whatever consistency you like.

If those chocolately, heavy, and fluffy are the pre-reqs I say just use whipped chocolate ganache.

Question about the butter.

You have listed 2 sticks unsalted butter then you also have 2 to 6 tablespoons of butter. Is the second one with tablespoons supposed to be milk instead of butter?

AOh I must've had butter on the mind!! I'm so sorry! It's 2 sticks unsalted butter & 2-6 tbsp of milk or heavy cream!! Great catch ;)

AI was slummin and kept it simple with regular butter and cocoa powder. I did do one batch as a dark chocolate frosting though and both were phenominal. Exactly what I was looking for! Thanks again!

You can get an even richer buttercream with that recipe by putting boiling hot water into your cocoa powder and making a paste.  Then let it cool to room temperature before putting it in your recipe.

Thanks for the tip! I might have to try that. Isn't it called "blooming"?
