How to Make It

Making the whipped chocolate buttercream icing was so simple but takes time.

My Experience

This Easy Whipped Chocolate Buttercream Frosting was simple to make. But took a long time. It took about 2 hours to harden in my fridge and another half of an hour to get it back to room temperature. So I spent a lot of time waiting for my late-night desert. Thankfully I snuck in a few bites of chocolate before I began melting them.

I made half a batch and used Hershey bars as my chocolate ‘morsels’.

 

This was a very simple way to make a whipped chocolate buttercream frosting. I expected the taste of this whipped icing to be more soft and smooth. But it was actually quite the opposite. The chocolate frosting actually held a very strong flavor! Almost a bitter chocolate taste and quickly became too much for my midnight snack. (probably a good thing) However,  I can only imagine how amazing this would be as frosting to a vanilla cake or even with strawberries!

The icing really is great and was definitely easy!
