Strawberry White Chocolate Buttercream
This Strawberry White Chocolate Buttercream is the perfect flavor combination. This buttercream will pair deliciously with any of your favorite cupcakes.
- 1 cup butter softened
- 4 cups confectioner's sugar
- 1-2 heaping tablespoons strawberry preserves
- 3/4 cup white chocolate candy melts (I also like using pink for this recipe)
- 1-2 tablespoons milk
Melt chocolate in microwave for 1 minute or according to directions. Stir vigorously, they hold their shape until stirred. Heat as needed in 30-second intervals until totally melted. Set aside.
Using a mixer, cream together butter and vanilla. On a slow speed, add sugar one cup at a time until combined. Beat in strawberry preserves.
Add cooled melted chocolate slowly, you can add as much or as little as you'd like depending on your taste.
Continue mixing until light and fluffy. You may need to add more sugar or a little of the milk until you find the right consistency, this varies each time I make this recipe.
Frost cupcakes as you'd like, with a piping bag or by hand. If you are not going to frost right away, keep the bowl covered until ready to frost. Enjoy!
