Chocolate Butter Cream Icing

Pictured here on a moist delicious chocolate cake made with applesauce and buttermilk, it is a perfect (not too sweet) topping. Go ahead and mix it up though – instead of chocolate use raspberry jam for flavoring!

Chocolate Butter Cream Icing

1 cup salted butter

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3 one ounce squares of melted semi sweet chocolate (make sure to cool it!)

1/2 tsp instant coffee

1-2 tbsp cream

3 – 3 3/4 cups icing sugar

Melt chocolate squares in microwave carefully, until they are smooth – stir and set asdie to cool

Whip the butter until light anf fluffy

Add cocoa powder, beating well

WHEN CHOCOLATE IS COOL, add to butter

Add instant coffe to 1 tbsp cream, then add to butter mixture

Now, add in enough icing sugar, 1 cup at a time until you have reached the consistency you are looking for – fabulous!
