Best chocolate buttercream? - Page 2

post #16 of 25
Try your favorite BC recipe- made with real butter; add ghiridelli chopped sweet baking chocolate(it's cocoa powder, but that's the name of it) and some reg. cocoa powder for color and richness; alittle gran. sugar for sweetness if you like it sweeter, and be sure to use milk instead of water. Hope this isn't too confusing.

You know what is the best, richest, chocolati-est... icon_wink.gif icing?

Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Frosting! It's on the back of their cocoa can and on their website. It is so good. I have a couple of pics in my photos that I used this frosting on, and you can almost smell them! icon_smile.gif

I found this recipe when I was making the Devils Food Cheesecake from Juniors that I found on the Food Network website. It is THE best chocolate icing I've ever tasted and it crusts really nicely. I used the Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder.

6 cups sifted confectioners' sugar (1 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled
2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup heavy or whipping cream


In a large bowl, sift the confectioners' sugar, cocoa, and salt together. In another large bowl, cream the butter with a mixer on high until light yellow and slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. With the mixer still running, beat in the chocolate, corn syrup, and vanilla. Reduce the mixer speed to low and beat in the sugar-cocoa mixture in two additions, beating well after each. Blend in the cream until the frosting is a spreading consistency, adding a little more cream if needed. Whip the frosting on high until light and creamy, about 2 minutes more.

I like SMBC with a little extra 10x sugar and chocolate ganache made with dark (72%) chocolate icon_smile.gif

Here's the recipe I use and I get rave reviews.

1/2 cup shortening
2 cups butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 pounds confectioners sugar
2 TBSP Merigue Powder
3 tbsp cocoa
3 tbsp NUtella
Chocolate Caramel Coffee Creamer to get as thin as you need

I think I will try using baking chocolate next time and that will probably make even better.

Hands down, the Chocolate Syrup recipe on this site. It is SO good and rich! I refer to it as the "better-than-sex frosting" to my friends, hehe. It pipes well, too.

OMG, the combo together was awesome. I did cheat and doctor a choc. cake mix, but I made the cheesecake according to Juniors directions and it was really really easy and sooo good. My dh now says he wants this every birthday, lol.
