• White Chocolate Buttercream

    filed under: Chocolate Cookies on December 16, 2011

    I lovelovelove white chocolate.  Incorporating it into buttercream was a pretty natural progression for me.

    White Chocolate Buttercream


        • 1 stick butter
        • 2 c powder sugar
        • 1 c chopped white chocolate
        • 1 tbsp. milk


        1. Place room temperature butter and sugar in stand mixer and combine. Mixture will still seem dry.
        2. Over a double broiler (pan with 1-2 inches boiling water with heat safe bowl over top) slowly melt white chocolate.
        3. Pour melted white chocolate into mixer while on low speed. Be careful as chocolate is hot. Add in 1 tablespoon milk and turn mixer to medium. Mix for 1-2 minutes to achieve desired consistency.

        This recipe will cover a dozen cupcakes or one 2-layer cake. (Not including crumb coat)

        Since this frosting is so sweet, I love pairing it with a rich dark chocolate.

        Be sure to let me know what you pair it with when you try it! 🙂
