Chocolate Frosting
This Chocolate frosting is very versatile. It is the real deal!
Ingredients
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup Dutch process cocoa powder
3/4 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
Directions
Melt the butter in a medium saucepot, then whisk in the sugar and cocoa powder. Continue to whisk this over medium heat until the mixture begins to bubble, then whisk in the cream. Continue to whisk until the mixture returns to a simmer (gentle bubbles) and whisk for an additional minute.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla and salt. Cool the mixture (it will look like a thick fudge sauce) to room temperature, then chill for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally while chilling. This will set the frosting to a spreadable consistency.

To assemble, peel the parchment from a cake layer and place it on a plate or platter. Spread an even layer of frosting over the top of the cake and place the second cake layer on top. Frost the top and sides of the cake, spreading until smooth. Chill the cake to set, but pull the cake from the fridge an hour before slicing and serving.

Cake will keep for up to 4 days, refrigerated.
