Chocolate Buttercream Frosting-1-01

I’ve given you many cupcake and cake recipes over the last few months, and this is my first post to focus on frosting. This is a delicious, simple chocolate frosting that will go great with almost anything. I made mine with my dark chocolate cupcake recipe. For color, I used a little left over salted caramel frosting I had to create the pink flowers. The combination was delicious! This recipe is everything you want from a chocolate frosting, it’s creamy, rich and chocolatey heaven! Enjoy!

The best part is you can mix up the recipe, add in different ingredients to the cookies for a change: colorful M&Ms, pecans, etc. However you make them, my favorite part is eating them.
