INGREDIENTS

  • 8 oz. high-quality dark chocolate chopped (or dark chocolate chips)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Hi-ratio Shortening
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 5 cups powdered sugar sifted

  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

  4. Gradually add remaining powdered sugar and mix until combined. Add heavy cream or milk 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach a smooth and creamy consistency.
  5. Increase mixer speed to medium-high and whip until light and fluffy about 5-7 minutes. Use to frost cakes cupcakes and more!
