2 Ingredient White Chocolate Buttercream is the richest, fluffiest white chocolate frosting ever!  And only 2 ingredients!

So a while back I made this 2 Ingredient Easy Chocolate Buttercream frosting. And everyone loved it and couldn’t believe how magic-y it is etc etc. But then I got a few people that were like, “no way does that actually work”.  Like I am a frosting fraud or something.

Now, I may fib to you about how many cookies I eat a day (always more) or how many sit ups I do (always less), but I will never tell a frosting untruth. It’s basically the North on my moral compass.

This frosting has 2 ingredients. Just 2. Butter and white chocolate. It was the same with the chocolate version . I don’t know how it works, but it just does people. But here’s the deal, it’s different than a traditional buttercream frosting, a little less sweet, and more silky. It’s pretty special!

The reason for today’s post, though.. is that I got a TON of inquiries on whether or not that method would work with white chocolate, or butterscotch, or even cinnamon chips. I am here because I did the experiment for you!

Yes. Yessssss. Yessssssssssss.

Totally works, y’all.

If you like white chocolate, you need to stop whatever you are doing and make this. I am going to warn you for sure, this is a leeetle different than you’re average frosting.  It’s super rich, but also totally light and fluffy.  More like a Swiss Meringue Buttercream than anything else.  But way easier.  And more fun.

Here are the ridiculously simple steps…

You’ll need 2 cups of white chocolate and 1 pound of butter.  I know, it’s a lot.

Melt your butter and white chocolate in a saucepan over low heat…

The white chocolate and butter will separate and look all-together unappetizing.  It’s part of the process.

Chill that for a while.  I stuck mine in the fridge overnight.

When it’s solid you can take it out of the fridge…

Let it sit out for a little bit, just to take the chill off, and come out of the saucepan easier.

Then plop it in your mixing bowl and whip it up…

After 2-3 minutes of beating the heck out of it, it will be super fluffy…

    I just tried this. The flavor is fantastic!! What I had happen is that even though I totally melted the white chocolate and butter, when I whipped it high speed I still had lumps. I beat it on high for a good 5 minutes and still lumps. It also reminds me of another frosting I had years. Believe me, even with the lumps it is very good.

    1. Shelly

      When you melted it down where there lumps? Also, was it white chocolate or butter? Maybe you didn’t melt it completely? Just wondering where the lumps would have come from!!

    Can’t wait to try this for my daughters birthday cake, as she only likes white chocolate. Quick question though, can you halve the recipe?

    1. DianeMargaret M

      I’ve even quartered it (leftovers are far too awesome to not eat…very dangerous to the waistline!!!).
      It’s just equal amounts.

    I think you have great recipes & I usually pin them for my followers, but I am having a problem with a “follow me on Pinterest Kohl’s” pop-up. It does not allow me to pin the site & I don’t want to pass the Kohl’s ad on to my followers. Sorry to bring this up here, but I couldn’t find another way to reach you.

      That’s so weird! I haven’t seen that before! It shouldn’t happen when you pin directly from my site..Sounds like something that is coming from Pinterest?

  4. This is just amazing! though I have a question, I have just made this, chilled it for four hours, took it out, whipped it, but it has a bitty texture, do you know why this is/how to get rid of it? thanks! x

    1. Steph

      I had to beat mine for about five minutes to rid of the strange texture. Know I’m a little late on this- but just made it. I’m putting it on top of your vanilla cupcake and tossing in a blueberry filling!

  5. LOL, why would people doubt you on this magic buttercream stuff? You even say you`re a buttercream addict in your description! This looks delicious. I LOVE white chocolate and I know I`ll love this for sure.

    Uh – those sticks of butter nearly jumped off my computer screen and straight on to my “muffin top”. What camera are you using?

  7. Sara

    I like the look of fondant but hate the taste- could I spread this smooth on a cake or is it too airy? Thanks! Love your site!!

  8. Val

    This looks amazing! Would it matter if you use salted vs unsalted butter? Does it stand on it’s own for very long? Like if you decorate a cake tonight, will the icing still be okay tomorrow?
    Thanks!

    This sounds amazing 🙂 … Will this hold up if I were to frost a Red Velvet Cake and left it at room temperature in Hawaii for a few hours… it’s a warmer room temp. here.
