A light, fluffy, silky and dreamy Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. Perfect for frosting cakes, cupcakes, and more!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup (227g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • ½ cup (92g) Hi-ratio Shortening
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 5 cups (640g) powdered sugar, sifted
  • ¼ cup (25g) unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 8 oz semi sweet chocolate chips, melted and cooled
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 4-6 Tablespoons heavy cream or milk
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with a hand-held mixer, beat the butter, shortening and salt on medium speed until light and fluffy (about 5-6 minutes). Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  2. Turn the mixer to low, and gradually add half of the sugar and the cocoa and beat on low speed until just combined. Pour in the cooled melted chocolate and vanilla and mix on medium-low speed until combined.
  3. Gradually add remaining powdered sugar and mix until combined. Add heavy cream or milk 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach a smooth and creamy consistency.
  4. Increase mixer speed to medium-high and whip until light and fluffy, about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Store frosting in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for several months.
