    mister_quasar's Note:

    This is the chocolate buttercream of your dreams. Incorporating both dark and milk chocolate gives it a silky smooth texture, deep flavor, and delicate sweetness compared to powdered-sugar buttercreams.

      Break the chocolate into squares and place in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave, stopping and stirring every 15 seconds, until chocolate is completely melted. Do not allow it to exceed 160°F Chocolate may also be melted in a double boiler if you prefer.
