Chocolate Butter Cream Frosted Cupcake Recipe

Happy Friday!

 I do not know about you but the weekend is when I love to  try out new recipes, mostly baked goods but also savory eats too. I thought I would share an easy and delicious recipe for chocolate cupcakes with chocolate butter cream frosting that I made last weekend. These cupcakes are delicious! My favorite part was liking the spatula for the frosting, it is some of the best I have ever made. 

The recipe for Chocolate Butter Cream frosting came from a great blog I found while perusing Pinterest, called Savory Sweet Life. The recipe for the cupcakes is the one I always use, you can find it on the back of the Hershey's cocoa can or go here where I wrote about it.

Sweet Savory Life

Butter Cream Frosting Recipe:

2 sticks of softened butter (Must be SOFT not melted)
31/2 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp of vanilla
4 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream


Cream softened butter in an electric mixer for a few minutes. Turn off mixer and add the cocoa powder and the powdered sugar, start mixing on low speed otherwise you will have a huge mess. Mix ingredients until incorporated and then add the salt, vanilla and the heavy whipping cream. Mix on high for 4 minutes or until light and fluffy.

I hope you try this delicious recipe! If you do let me know how it turned out and how you liked it. If you have a recipe I should try send it to me, I love learning new things.

Have a fabulous, relaxing weekend.

Hello sweet one!
I dont visit this blog of yours often enough. I can't wait to try out this frosting. It sounds so sinful. I may as well just spread it all over my thighs and bum as that's where it will end up anyway :-)
