3teaspoonsAmoretti Black Food Color(optional, but MAN does it do the trick and without any taste!)
Melt butter and stir in the cocoa with the paddle attachment on a stand mixer.
Add powdered sugar and mix on low speed.
Start with 1/3 cup heavy cream and add it to the mixer. Increase the mixer speed to medium. Add 2-4 tablespoons more heavy cream till you reach your desired consistency.
Add vanilla extract and black food color and turn the mixer to medium high and beat for 90 seconds.
Try not to eat it all. 😉
I used Amoretti Vanilla Extract and black food color in this frosting. The vanilla is top notch and the black food coloring adds the extra depth that we want from black frosting. The cocoa noir just about gets you there, but this black food coloring does the trick. And it has ZERO aftertaste!
