Has anyone added melted chocolate and/or cocoa powder to the whipped cream buttercream recipe? I'm referring to the recipe that combines meringue as well as powdered sugar/crisco mixture. If so, what was your ratio of chocolate to buttercream? Thanks so much, Rebeca :smile:

In the comments, the baker says something about adding cocoa to the icing.

I use melted semi sweet chocolate to any of my buttercreams. let it cool at at the end. I use enough to taste as I want it to taste. I don,t use cocoa. You can, but I like the nice semi sweet chocolate.
