Creamy, chocolately goodness.

Chocolate Buttercream


  • 12 (1 ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 cups unsalted butter
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1 Melt the bittersweet chocolate, and allow to cool slightly.

2 Place the butter or margarine, salt, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Beat with a mixer until very light and airy, about 4 minutes. Add the powdered sugar a little at a time while beating on low speed. Mix well, and beat on medium speed for about 4 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, and beat for 5 minutes more. Add the melted chocolate, and beat 4 minutes.
