Chocolate Frosting

Perfect topping for a yellow cupcake!



10        ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped or chips

2          tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature

1          cup heavy cream


Place chocolate and butter in the Cuisinart™ mixing bowl. Reserve.

Scald heavy cream in a small saucepan (heat until just bubbling around edges – may be done in microwave). Once cream starts to scald, pour it over the chocolate and butter. Stir with a wooden spoon to cool mixture slightly. Allow to rest for about 5 minutes.

Insert the chef’s whisk. Turn to speed 1 and gradually increase to speed 12. Whip for about 2 minutes until the frosting thickens and increases slightly in volume.

Note: If doubling recipe, bring the speed up only to 7 or 8, as the chocolate will spatter on the maximum setting.
