Two Ingredient Chocolate Buttercream | Icing For Cakes, Fillings Or Frosting

A cup cake with a chocolate icing makes everything better.

This two ingredient chocolate buttercream icing is so easy to make that even a beginner can get it right.

You don’t need any pre knowledge of baking or icing to get perfect buttercream.

Just mix and whip is the magic formula.

It goes well with chocolate cake, orange cake or maybe a carrot cake too.

Made chocolate cupcakes for a bday party  and iced with this buttercream and trust me it was finger licking good. This? pic is not that good as I was in a hurry but the taste was really good❤

The icing is thick, fluffyaand holds shape very well. I mean really can it get better than this?

The Best Ever Stabilized Whipping Cream Used For Frostings(3 Ways)

Directions to make 2 ingredient chocolate buttercream icing-


100 gm compound chocolate or chocolate chips

100 gm butter(I have used amul butter)


In a saucepan dump your chocolate and butter.

Now on a low heat melt the two together.

Once melted leave it to cool and then keep in fridge until its solid.

Now take it out from fridge and leave it on the counter until little soft.

Now if you can directly whip it into the same pan start whipping or transfer to another bowl.

Whip for about 2-3 min and your butter cream is ready.

Things to note-

  • I have used dark chocolate so my buttercream is also dark.
  • Since I used amul butter which has salt so the buttercream also has hint of salt which I kind of like in contrast of the sweetness.
  • This buttercream works for milk chocolate or white chocolate too.

  1. I normally frost my cakes with whipped cream, buy always want to try with butter cream. Addition of lots of icing sugar holds me back. This one without any added sugar is arousing my interest. Will surely try in my next cake as frosting

  2. Such an easy buttercream recipe…I definitely will try it…by saying whipping after taking out from fridge, is it by hand whisk or electric blender?

  3. This is a great reference post Avin! I hope you tagged it well for more visibility. I will use it in one of my posts as a link back.
