  1. Melt the white chocolate over low heat and set aside to cool completely.

  2. Place the butter into a large bowl and mix in the icing sugar, a little bit at a time.

  3. Add in the cooled melted chocolate and use an electric whisk or stand mixer to whisk it in until light and fluffy. If it's too thick, add a splash of plant-based milk and if it's too runny, place it in the fridge for 30-60 minutes to help it firm up.

Recipe Notes

  • The chocolate must be completely cool before adding. It will split the buttercream otherwise.
  • The buttercream will set firmer than it first appears. I find the texture best at room temperature but it can also be stored in the fridge.
