I love that this fluffy chocolatey frosting is super versatile because you can choose any kind of chocolate you'd like depending on what you're pairing it with, bittersweet is my favorite, but for today I wanted milk chocolate. That's Jeremy's preferred chocolate. Plus we were putting it on an Espresso Cake, which is already not insanely sweet, so I thought it'd be a good choice. I also love this frosting because it has actual melted chocolate in it. Which for some reason makes it seem more tasty to me. Is it just me? I don’t know. Lemme know. Okay, let's jump in and make chocolate frosting together...
Begin with 2 cups room temperature butter in a large bowl
Cream it with a mixer over medium speed until fluffy and creamy
Next pour in 2 cups of powdered sugar.
Next a splash of heavy cream
And mix again. Keep mixing powdered sugar and cream alternately until you've mixed in 8 cups powdered sugar and 2-3 Tbsps heavy cream.
Get 1 cup of chocolate chips, again you can use whatever kind you'd like, but for this we're using Milk Chocolate.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave (30 seconds at a time).
Stir it with a spatula and knock all the air out. If you aren't using it immediately, cover with plastic wrap completely against the whole surface of the frosting then refrigerate, unless you're using it within two days. Keeps in the fridge for 2 weeks.
