  • 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.
