This is by far the most chocolately, rich, and simple buttercream frosting I have ever tasted in my life! Don't worry about the espresso for those non-coffee people out there, you can't even tell it's the secret ingredient!

This is the *BEST* chocolate buttercream I've ever tasted and I'm picky! The addition of espresso greatly enhances the taste without overpowering it. This will be my go-to recipe when I need a chocolate frosting.
