Fluffy Mocha Frosting
  • 1½ cups unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 1½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1½ teaspoons espresso powder or 3 teaspoons instant coffee powder
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer beat the butter on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  2. Turn the mixer down to the lowest setting and slowly incorporate the powdered sugar and cocoa powder into the butter. Make sure you do this step or the dry ingredients are going to fly out of the bowl everywhere.
  3. Once you have added all the sugar and cocoa to the mix add the whipping cream, vanilla, salt and coffee powder. Turn the mixer up to medium-high speed and continue mixing for 10 minutes until light and fluffy.
