The Best Chocolate Frosting Ever
is so very simple to make. Chocolate + Friday = Happy!
The great thing about this frosting is that it is ALDIvore, too.
Without further ado…
Sour Cream Chocolate Frosting
Bring 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup sour cream to room temperature.
Melt a whole bar of this
chocolate. Either use a double boiler or your microwave on half power for 1 minute increments, stirring in between. Let the chocolate cool until doesn’t feel warm anymore.
In the bowl of your stand mixer using the whip attachment (or using a hand mixer) whip the butter until it is smooth. Add the sour cream and mix them for a minute or so. Gradually, so that your kitchen isn’t covered in powdered sugar dust, add in 2-3 cups of confectioner’s sugar. Continue to mix on low for 30 seconds or so and then on high for a minute. Return the mixer speed to low and add the chocolate while the mixer is running. (This always looks so neat — the ribbons of melted chocolate gradually mixing in.) Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl when it looks like it is thoroughly combined. Then mix it on high for a minute or so to incorporate air and fluff up.
Frost your cake, cookies, cup cakes, whatever.
It’ll be grand.
Y’all have a good Friday!
