Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Put chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Turn off heat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until chocolate has melted, about 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature, 25 to 30 minutes.

  • Put butter, sugar, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; mix on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce speed to low. Mix in melted chocolate until combined, scraping down sides of bowl as needed, 1 to 2 minutes. Chill, stirring often, just until frosting is firm enough to spread or pipe, 10 to 15 minutes. Use immediately.
