Chocolate Bettercreme

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have a bucket of Bettercreme frosting, a friend of mine asked if I could make it chocolate. Anyone have any ideas of how to do this? I'm guessing I will need cocoa powder and maybe some melted chocolate chips? TIA!

I put about 1 cup of chocolate ganache into a huge bowl of the bettercreme and whipped it up. Nice, soft, chocolatey good. Color was nice, too. If you don't have ganache handy, I would try a bit of cocoa powder and see how that would work for you.

I would say that Melvira is the Bettercreme queen. She started the following topic which has a gazillion different ways to flavor it:

Thank you so much everyone! icon_biggrin.gif I never even thought about ganache, or chocolate syrup! I'll try these and take a look at Melvira's post also. Thanks again!

3/4 c. of Hershey's cocoa powder for every 3 cups of frosting. I would also add a little more flavoring like vanilla and maybe some water a tsp. at a time if the frosting is thick.

Instead of the cocoa powder, you can also use 1 oz (1 square) melted unsweetened baking chocolate. I add a dash or two of cinnamon to give the flavor another dimension.
I'll never fit in a size 6 if I keep having cake for breakfast.

I've used the melted chocolate before as well. The two taste the same. Sometimes I just don't feel like melting the chocolate though. I guess it's preference.

I use a good quality semi sweet cocoa powder. I always add a good vanilla when making chocolate buttercream. It enhances the flavor of the chocolate.

Rich's Bettercreme and chocolate buttercream are two different animals. icon_smile.gif

Haha, JanH, that clears up a lot of confusion... I thought she just misspelled buttercream :p That bettercreme looks pretty awesome. Do you know where you can buy some?

Rich's Bettercreme liquid is available online, google Rich's Bettercreme.

The liquid Bettercreme is also available at GFS (Gordon Food Service.

The Ready to Use (prewhipped) Bettercreme is available in buckets from Sam's Clubs that have bakeries. (You have to go directly to the bakery part and ask.)

Costco used to sell it in liquid form online to their business customers, but I don't they do that anymore...

Sysco sells liquid Bettercreme in bulk:
