To make this recipe chocolate simply add melted COOLED Chocolate at the last stage of mixing
Serves: 6½ cups
  • 1 Recipe Swiss Buttercream above
  • 4 - 8 ounces of melted Chocolate
  • *adjust according to your desired "chocolate-y-ness!"
  1. Add the melted COOLED Chocolate to the buttercream at the last stage of mixing
Adding anything to the base recipe of Swiss Buttercream will cause a less stable result, so chocolate buttercream should be refrigerated not because it will spoil, but because it needs to be colder to hold up to decoration and prevent drooping on the cake
