I'm about to make some chocolate buttercream icing to color black, but I was wondering, anyone try this with the full Crisco shortening recipe? I noticed many of you use the Wilton basic with the 1/2 butter, 1/2 crisco with 3/4 cup cocoa or 3 oz. chocolate added.
Can I add this cocoa or chocolate to the all risco recipe? Do I have to thin with milk?
I only use the all crisco recipe and have add just the cocoa powder to it with no problems. I also added just a little hersey syrup just to give it some more flavor and it turned out great did not thin out at all. I only added about 2 tsp of syrup though. I hope this helps
Sounds yummy! I'll give it a try.
I've tried similar recipes but they don't have that yummy chocolate look. I have also added brown wilton color and still no luck. Any suggestions?
