Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  • To make icing, melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir in sugar, cocoa, and salt- the mixture will be thick/grainy.
  • Combine cream, sour cream and coffee granules in a large measuring cup, mixing until smooth.
  • Gradually add cream mixture to chocolate until blended and smooth.
  • Cook until sugar has dissolved, and mixture is smooth and hot to the touch.
  • DO NOT BOIL.
  • Take mixture off the heat, and add vanilla.
  • Cool at room temperature until spreadable (up to three hours).
  • If it isn't getting thick enough to be spreadable, put in the refrigerator until thick enough to spread.
  • If it gets too thick to spread easily, warm gently in the microwave until it's just right (20 seconds or so, repeat if necessary).
