2 Ingredient Rich Chocolate Frosting

Hey Lovely! Before you start your baking today, I wanted to let you know about a super cute foodie inspired Earring subscription box that I sell to support this page and the people who make it possible.

They come to you with a tiny recipe kit and whole lotta love to say ThankYou for supporting my continued ability to keep making free recipe content that hopefully sparks a little joy in your home.

  1. Take Equal Parts (eg. 100g to 100g or 3oz to 3oz) of unsalted butter and dark or milk chocolate. I used 300g of each to frost 12 cupcakes
  2. Pour your chocolate and butter into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute intervals, and stir in between until the mixture it’s smooth.
  3. Cover your chocolate mixture, and chill for 2 hours in the fridge.
  4. Whip your chilled frosting with an electric hand mixer.


  1. Place frosting into a dispoable piping bag with a star piping tip.
  2. Pipe onto your favorite cupcakes (I used chocolate mud cakes from my cookbook!)
  3. Add sprinkles, and place a candy cherry on top.
