Two-Ingredient Chocolate Buttercream

November 12, 2013

Frosting made with just butter and chocolate chips? Believe it!


It looks like frosting, tastes like frosting, and is really easy to make.

Cupcakes with frosting

Heads up:  You need to plan ahead a bit because the butter and chocolate chips are melted, cooled, and then brought back to room temperature before mixing into a fluffy, smooth frosting. But it’s worth the wait! You’ll find the recipe here on Cookies and Cups. I made a smaller amount, using 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, which worked just fine.


  1. I’ve been meaning to try this forever – I need to get on it! You really can’t go wrong with two ingredient frosting.

  2. Julia has a recipe very similar to this. It looks awesome!

  3. Yum. That looks so incredibly smooth and delicious!!!!
