Mocha Buttercream Frosting

Egg-Free, Gluten-Free, Reduced Sugar

This Mocha Buttercream Frosting is simply the best. Rich dark cocoa paired with finely ground coffee gives this frosting a depth of flavor you won’t find anywhere else, especially not in a can! It just can’t be beat.

You only need six ingredients to make this quick, easy buttercream frosting recipe. Even though this is a beginner-friendly recipe, the results will impress your relatives and friends. Seriously, they’re going to think you went to culinary school.

This Mocha Buttercream Frosting recipe is perfect for frosting cakes and cupcakes. It will yield enough frosting to make one Bundt cake or twenty to thirty cupcakes. I hope you enjoy it as much as our family did!

Note: This recipe does contain caffeine, so if you are sensitive to it, you may want to use decaf or use my Basic Vanilla Buttercream Recipe.
