Rated 1 out of 5 by Mollygirl17 from I don’t know what went wrong I’ve made buttercream hundreds of times, but this was my first chocolate. The frosting was incredibly stiff and dry and had an overwhelming cocoa powder taste. I ended up adding an extra 2T of butter, some vanilla and almond extracts, powdered sugar and 1/2c of milk (it was a double batch) and whipping it for several minutes. It improved the flavor but it still isn’t my favorite. In doing some quick online research I see other recipes call for only 1/3c cocoa powder, so next time I will start with that much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shonni Bakes from True Chocolate I made the Vanilla Buttercream frosting before and it was very good and also easy. But this Chocolate Buttercream is taking frosting to a new level. Not only was it easy, but very smooth and chocolaty!
