Be sure to check out the Perfect Chocolate Cake recipe. It pairs wonderfully with this Perfect Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.


1. Use real butter, not margarine – I prefer to use salted butter but unsalted butter works equally well.

2. Speaking of salt, if your frosting is too sweet for your taste you can add a pinch or two of salt. I add salt almost every time.

3. Go ahead and use a full cup of your favorite cocoa powder. If you’re looking for a dark chocolate frosting, use the Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder. It is delicious!

This recipe makes enough frosting to generously frost a two-layer cake.
