Chocolate buttercream 🍫

Making your own chocolate buttercream is so easy.   The fondant-friendly recipe is perfect for coating all your cakes.  With extra dark chocolate, the cream doesn’t get too sweet. 

INGREDIENTS (For 4 servings)

250 g dark chocolate couverture
80g cream
250 g soft butter
60g powdered sugar


1st step
Finely chop the dark chocolate, place in a metal bowl and melt slightly over a water bath, stirring occasionally.  Bring the cream to the boil in a small saucepan, then stir the hot cream into the chocolate in portions. 

Mix the chocolate and cream vigorously, but without incorporating any air bubbles.

2nd step
Cover the ganache with cling film and let it set at room temperature for 2-3 hours.  The ganache should have a consistency like nut nougat cream before further processing.

3rd step
Cream the soft butter until it has become noticeably lighter, then sift the powdered sugar.  Stir the powdered sugar into the butter in portions, then add the ganache a tablespoon at a time and beat everything until creamy. 

The chocolate buttercream is good for cakes or cupcakes – it will keep in the fridge for at least 4 days.
