This recipe is adapted from Real Simple magazine. Serve with croissants, or on pancakes -- or anything you like!
- 1/2 cup butter unsalted
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
Make sure butter is at room temperature.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave in 30 second increments, stir after each 30 seconds. This shouldn't take more than 3 times or a max of 1 minute, 30 seconds. Chips won't look melted until you stir them. You can also put chips in double boiler to melt.
Add ingredients into mixing bowl in order listed.
Mix on low until smooth. Make sure to get all butter parts incorporated into the chocolate.
Put chocolate butter into serving bowl. You can eat it right away or let it firm a little bit.
Store in the refrigerator, but it's best served at room temperature.
