Yield Makes about 6 cups

Number Of Ingredients 5

1 1/2 cups sugar
6 large egg whites
Pinch kosher salt
1 pound 6 ounces (5 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into tablespoon-size pieces, room temperature
6 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled

Steps:

  • Put sugar, egg whites, and salt in the heatproof bowl of an electric mixer. Set over a pan of simmering water. Whisk constantly until sugar has dissolved and mixture registers 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer.
  • Return bowl to mixer; fit mixer with the whisk attachment. Beat on medium-high speed until stiff, glossy peaks form, and mixture is cool, about 10 minutes.
  • Switch to the paddle attachment. With mixer on medium speed, add butter, 1 or 2 tablespoons at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix, scraping down sides of bowl as needed, until the mixture is smooth. Mix in chocolate. Use immediately, or cover and refrigerate. Frosting can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 3 days. Before using, bring to room temperature; beat with the paddle attachment on medium-low speed until smooth.

  • Melt the chocolate first, by using a Bain Marie** or in a microwave at 50% power in 15-second increments.
  • In a large bowl or bowl of an electric mixer add the sugar, salt and egg whites, place the bowl over a Bain Marie** and whisk until the mixture reaches about 180F/82C or the sugar has dissolved and the texture has slightly thickened and its foamy. This should take about 2-4 minutes depending on how warm your stove is.
  • Add the egg mixture to the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or a large bowl with a handheld mixer with the whisk attachment. Beat on medium speed for 3-5 minutes until the mixture has cooled and thickened. This will take longer if done with a hand-held mixer.
  • Next, add the butter chunks one at a time, the mixture will likely look curdled and you’ll think you’ve ruined it, keep mixing and it will become a lush smooth texture. If the butter looks like is separating and looks greasy- it could be because it's too warm so place the bowl in the fridge for 10-15 minutes then start mixing again.
