Chocolate Buttercream Icing {Recipe}


Philosophy time:

I believe that there are two kinds of people when it comes to cake (and cookies and brownies) – the cake kind and the icing kind.

Here is how my family lies: Me, C, and H – we are all icing people. G and Ben – they are the cake kind. It is good to have both kinds of people in each household and even better if you can find a spouse that is the opposite because then you are able to share nicely (and indulge in more of your favorite).

Being an icing girl, I am always on the hunt for new delicious icings. Here I have my Chocolate Buttercream. Just recently we used it on some birthday cupcakes for G. Among the other recipes that use it though is one for these Vanilla Chocolate Chip Brownies <– check them out! If you are an icing kind of person you will love it. If you are the cake kind, hopefully your spouse or kids will;) Enjoy!

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe! I love chocolate cake and chocolate icing… well, I just love anything chocolate! I used to have a chocolate frosting recipe that you had to heat up on the stove. This one sounds a lot easier – thanks!
