This is a super easy, very decadent buttercream recipe that I developed to suit the chocoholic tastes of my family. If you are looking for a frosting with a rich chocolate flavor minus the cloyingly sweet taste of confectioners sugar--this is it! This recipe makes a very generous amount of frosting--I use the extra on fresh strawberries or icecream.


  1. cream butter, sugar, and whipping cream with a hand mixer.
  2. add cocoa, vanilla, and espresso granules and beat until smooth and light.
  3. If the frosting is too dry, add more cream in small increments at a time to get desired consistency.

Perfection! This makes a smooth, satiny, delicious, deep dark chocolate frosting.
