Chocolate Buttercream

 

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 pound powdered sugar
  • 1 - 4 tablespoons milk
  

Place butter in mixer with paddle attachment. Beat for 2 minutes until very creamy. Melt chocolate in microwave or double boiler. Stir in corn syrup. Add chocolate mixture to mixer and process for about one minute on low speed, until butter and chocolate are mixed well. Speed up mixer to 4 and add powdered sugar slowly. When fully incorporated, stop mixer and scape bowl. Whip frosting again and add milk until desired consistency. You may or may not need to use all of the milk, depending on the humidity.
