Fluffy and Light Chocolate Buttercream

This chocolate buttercream is so light and fluffy, I think it could pass as a mousse! I also ate the remains of the bowl like a mousse and it was bloomin' delicious.

Serves 12-14 Cupcakes

<5 Minutes Preparation

5 Minutes Cooking




I N G R E D I E N T S

50g Dark Chocolate (I used 70% Lidnt)

50g Softened Butter

100g Icing Sugar

2tbs Hazelnut Milk

1/2tsp Vanilla Essence



M E T H O D

- Firstly, measure out the butter into a mixing bowl and if you have an electric whisk, beat until light and fluffy.

- Next, break up the chocolate into small pieces and gently melt either in a saucepan or microwave. Once melted, leave to cool.

- Add the vanilla and milk and whisk again.

- Introduce the icing sugar a tablespoon at a time and whisk in (this can get messy)

- Once the chocolate is cool enough, pour it into the buttercream and whisk. This time on a high speed to incorporate as much air as possible into the mixture.

- Serve on a delicious cake, or eat straight from the bowl. I'm not judging!
