Ingredients

  • ½ cup cold butter

  • ½ tsp espresso powder

  • ½ cup dark cocoa powder

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 5 cups powdered sugar

  • 12 tbs heavy whipping cream

Instructions

1

In a mixer whip the butter until it is fluffy.

2

Add in the espresso powder, dark cocoa powder, and vanilla and mix until combined.

3

Add in powdered sugar and heavy whipping cream. Alternating between the two. I like to add in 1 cup of powder sugar followed by 2 tbs of heavy whipping cream, let it combine and then add the next round of powdered sugar and cream.

4

Once everything is added, mix on high for 20-30 seconds.
