White Chocolate Frosting for Cupcakes

Servings: Frosts 12 cupcakes
This is a delicious and very tasty basic white frosting for cupcakes. Use the best quality white chocolate you can find such as Valrhona, Callebaut, Lindt or Scharffen Berger, to name a few.

4 1/2 ounces white chocolate, finely chopped
1 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick/3 oz./85g) unsalted butter, softened
Pinch of salt

1. Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler. Stir until smooth. Let cool to room temperature.

2. Sift the confectioners' sugar into a medium bowl. Stir in the milk and vanilla. Add the butter and salt and beat until smooth. Stir in the cooled white chocolate. Refrigerate until firm enough to frost the cupcakes, about 30 minutes.

Makes enough to frost 12 cupcakes.
