- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 3 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
- 1/4 cup Grand Marnier (orange liqueur) or orange juice
- 1/4 cup whipping cream
- 1 (16-ounce) package powdered sugar, sifted
How to Make It
Beat butter at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy. Add chocolate, Grand Marnier, and whipping cream; beat well. Gradually add sugar, beating at high speed 5 minutes or until spreading consistency.
Note: Grand Marnier is a brandy-based French liqueur flavored with orange peel. It pairs particularly well with chocolate. Other orange liqueurs or orange juice would work in this frosting, if desired.
