Chocolate frosting

There are many different ways of making chocolate frosting and this is the way i make it for my peanut butter cupcakes. It's just simple buttercream frosting with chocolate.
I'll show you how i make it :)

Tools you need:
Mixing bowl (click here)
Hand mixer or stand mixer

Piping bag (click here)
Piping tip (click here)

120 g butter (room temperature)
330 g powdered sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
125 g chocolate (dark or milk)
1-4 tbsp milk 


  • Beat the butter with the mixer until it gets lighter in color. This can take a while for some that have a more yellow type of butter. If yours is lighter in color already you don't need to beat it for too long. 
  • A bit at a time add the powdered sugar. Don't add it all at once because you'll get all the dust everywhere in the kitchen.
  • When it's all combined add the vanilla and mix again. 
  • Add the melted chocolate after that (melt it in the microwave in 15 second intervals).
  • When it's all combined check the consistency of the frosting. If it's too thick add the milk, one tbsp at a time. You don't want to add too much milk into the frosting because you don't want it to be too thin either. 
  • You know it's done when you get smooth peeks in the frosting.
  • Put the piping tip in the bag and add the frosting with a spatula. 

For these cupcakes i used the tip from Wilton number 2D. It makes a flower type look with the frosting. You start the swirl in the corner and work your way around and in to the middle. If you want a more detailed post on how to make this shape just tell me and i'll do that :)
