The best chocolate frosting ever!
In a double boiler, melt your dark chocolate. Set aside to cool slightly. You should be able to touch it without getting burned, but don’t let it cool enough that it starts to re-harden.
Start by creaming the butter in your electric mixer. Pour in slightly cooled chocolate (you don’t want it to melt the butter). Add in vanilla and instant coffee.
Slowly add in sugar 1 cup at a time; if it seems too thick, add in heavy cream until you reach the consistency you want.
Pipe onto cooled cupcakes.
This should yield enough frosting to frost one 2-layer 8-inch round cake or 18-24 cupcakes.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
