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!
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!
