Dark Chocolate Frosting
This frosting pairs well with our Devil's Food Cupcakes.
Why This Recipe Works
Most cake frostings aren’t thick enough and, consequently, slide off the top of the cupcake and make a mess. When we set out to create a Dark Chocolate Frosting recipe, we wanted to develop a thick, intensely flavored dark chocolate frosting that would stay put. We began with lots of semisweet chocolate and butter. And for easy preparation, we turned to the food processor. Combining hot cream with the white chocolate, salt, and corn syrup—with the machine running—helped melt the chocolate smooth in seconds.
