Yummy Chocolate Butter Cream Cupcake and Cake Frosting Recipe

This is a vintage recipe that I got from my aunt about 20 years ago and you can use this butter cream frosting on cakes, brownies or cupcakes. It is really easy to prepare and has a nice creamy texture to it.

French Butter Cream Frosting Recipe

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1/4 cup instant or regular coffee
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
4 medium egg yolks
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Place chocolate morsels, and liquid coffee into a blender container, cover and process until smooth. Pour the sugar, egg yolks, butter and vanilla extract into the container and blend again until smooth. Chill the container until it is of spreading consistency and use the frosting on cupcakes, cakes and/or brownies.
