After a long day and a late night- I finally had the kids in bed. I was in need of some way to just relax and enjoy a moment. I needed chocolate!
Pinterest always has amazing desert recipes. And yet I cannot find anything that I have all the ingredients for. After about an hour I decide to go back to the top of Pinterest. Lo and behold I see a recipe for EASY Whipped Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.
I know what you’re thinking- Frosting is for cake. Don’t judge!
Chocolate frosting is an excellent snack to enjoy at midnight!
Especially during the end of the month!
What you Need for Easy Whipped Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
This recipe has only 2 ingredients. You most likely have these in your home already so no special trip to the grocery for this one!
- 2 cups of chocolate morsels
- 4 sticks of butter
How to Make It
Making the whipped chocolate buttercream icing was so simple but takes time.
1. Melt the chocolate and butter.
2. Cool in fridge until hardened. Butter and chocolate will separate.
3. Set the pan out to get back to room temperature.
4. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
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!
