How to Make Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Ganache

Save

Chocolate frosting may just be icing on the cake, but this frosting will make the cake. It tastes like a chocolate candy bar, so if you have a chocolate sweet tooth you need to satisfy, you will love this recipe. You might even lick the bowl clean. It's perfect with a chocolate cake, but can be used with any kind of cake.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 bags (24 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Heat cream, corn syrup, and one stick of butter over medium-high heat until it barely comes to a boil. You'll know it's ready when little bubbles appear around the inside of the pot.

  • Dump chocolate chips in a mixing bowl and pour cream mixture over chips. Wait one minute, then stir until chocolate is smooth and has no lumps. Let mixture cool for five minutes.

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the other stick of butter and sugar until light and smooth.

  • Add cooled ganache and vanilla to the powdered sugar and butter mixture. Beat until light and smooth.

Tips & Warnings

  • Frost cake while frosting is at room temperature. If the frosting is too stiff, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of heavy cream. If it's too soft, thicken with more sifted powdered sugar.
