Amazing Chocolate Buttercream For Candies Recipe

Classic American Buttercream is by far my favorite filling or topping for every confection that I make. And who doesn’t love chocolate?

Let’s get started!


01 1 cup of unsalted

02 1 ½ cups of powdered sugar

03 ½ cup of dutch processed cocoa powder

04 3 tbsp of heavy cream

05 ¼ tsp of salt

Fit your handheld or stand mixer with a paddle or whisk attachment and beat the butter at medium speed. 


Sift the powdered sugar, salt, and cocoa powder together so that they are fully mixed.


Stop mixing and add the dry ingredients followed by the vanilla extract and the heavy cream.


To avoid any powder kick back, turn the mixer on low until everything is combined.
