Fudge-y Chocolate Buttercream.

Afternoon!

Is there any words go better together than fudge and chocolate? It basically makes your mouth water thinking about it πŸ™‚

As stated in my previous post, here is the recipe for my chocolate buttercream!

It is velvety, indulgent and oh so rich. It has both melted chocolate and cocoa powder and is a favourite with everyone whos has tasted it.

It has even been likened to Betty Crockers fudge icing?;) Surely that is a compliment and a half!

It is a very complimentary buttercream, it can be altered in so many ways for so many different occasions!
So if you’re looking for a sweet fix very sweet fix… this is the one for you;)

If you read most of my posts as you will know, last month i visited Munich for my birthday, as a foodie I felt like I was in my element :p

I also got to see a polar bear and its cub! I practically cried, it was so so SO adorable and full of energy..

I would like to write a detailed blog post about visiting Munich, it was truely a beautiful place to visit and I am STILL feeling those holiday blues 😦

TAKE ME BACK!!!!!!

It has been used in my previous cupcake recipes –

Terry’s chocolate orange muffins

Mini Egg/ Creme Egg Easter Muffins.

Ingredients

  • 100g milk chocolate
  • 200g butter
  • 300g icing sugar
  • 100g cocoa powder
  • milk, to loosen

Method

  1. Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a simmering pan of water! Easy huh? πŸ˜‰
  2. When it is smooth, glossy and fully melted, take off the heat and leave whilst you complete the buttercream.
  3. Beat the butter in a bowl (or use a mixer ;)) until smooth, sieve in the icing sugar gradually, then the cocoa… beat well to ensure that it is fully incorporated and smooth, you obviously don’t want any lumps!
  4. At this point it will look very inviting and already chocolate-y but bare with… now you can pour in the silky chocolate and give one last mix. If you think it is abit stiff then add a little milk to loosen and pipe away πŸ™‚
    DONE!!
    If you’ve managed to leave enough to pipe, then well done haha. I have a few recipes with this buttercream in them (written above) but as we’re fastly approaching Easter this will be perfect as alternative to Easter Eggs for family and friends:) (or even work colleagues!)

 

Have a good weekend!

Lots of Love X
