This Whipped Mocha Frosting is light, fluffy, and has a perfect balance of rich chocolate and bold coffee.
Hey friends, sorry it’s been a couple of days! I took the weekend off to spend with one of our closest friends and our God son who came to visit from Mississippi. It was so much fun to meet the little guy for the first time! We watched Frozen and Big Hero 6 and played with blocks and emptied the cupboards. It was nice to have the long weekend and now we can get back into the swing of things with some frosting!
So I’m going to be honest, I’m not really a coffee drinker. Even after 3 years working at Starbucks, I only get about two or three lattes a year. However, I kinda have a crush on dessert that has just the slightest hint of it in it! Coffee and espresso add such an amazing depth and richness to chocolate, you hardly notice the coffee flavor at all! This Whipped Mocha Frosting is one such dessert. A perfect blend of chocolate and coffee in a light and fluffy frosting perfect for cakes, cupcakes, and mousse cups! This particular batch was made for some decadent little Mocha Cupcakes coming up on the blog later this week!
