  • A pinch of salt
  • 200ml (1 cup) of whipping or heavy cream


Step 1

In a medium-sized saucepan, add the dark chocolate chopped into smaller pieces if you are using large bars, unsalted butter sliced into cubes, powdered sugar, instant coffee granules, salt, vanilla, and heavy or whipping cream, then place the saucepan on a stove over low heat, and stir continuously until melted and uniform. Once fully combined and incorporated, transfer the chocolate mixture to a bowl or deep container, then stir it lightly for a few seconds, and let cool to room temperature.

Step 2

Once the chocolate mixture is no longer hot and cooled to room temperature, place it inside the refrigerator to let cool completely and thicken. After a few minutes, you’ll see that the mixture has thickened and is now perfect for spreading if you want to use it at that you can, but if you want to use it for piping, then it is still too soft. Put it back in the refrigerator for 15 more minutes, then you can use it for piping.
