Chocolate Beer Frosting

I've put beer in the cake, and now I've put beer in the frosting. That's right its an all-round beer festival in the cake house. And yes, now you can beer-ify your life too, simply read on sweet lovers of the stout.

Chocolate Beer Frosting

1 and 3/4 cups powdered sugar1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup unsalted butter (at room temperature)1/4 cup stout beer (I used Old Rasputin Russian Stout)
2 oz. bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate (melted and cooled to room temperature)

1) Sift together the powdered sugar and cocoa into a small bowl.
2) Cream butter and stout beer till incorporated (they won't fully mix and that's okay).
3) Add powdered sugar and cocoa mix and beat on medium/high speed until light and fluffy.
4) Add chocolate and beat until smooth and creamy.

Note: Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature or the chocolate will seize.

Now frost up some cupcakes and have a beer-tastic day. For some cupcake ideas to go with your frosting check out these posts:

Now go bake and be merry!
