Dark Chocolate Cake with Hot Chocolate Buttercream
I want to preface this post by telling you how much I love the Tall Boy.
Like, more than any one person could love another.
And not just because he volunteered to take the shopping list to get groceries the other night because it was seriously cold and windy and I didn’t want to get chilled. I’m delicate, ya’ll.
But apparently, guys need clarification between “powdered hot chocolate mix” and “unsweetened cocoa.”
So I attempted to explain the difference to him (nicely, hello, I might need him to go to the store for me again sometime), and he pointed to the container on the cocoa powder where it said, “perfect for making hot chocolate” and said he just didn’t see why this wouldn’t work.
Okay, I can kind of see his point, but the short of the story is that this cake involved multiple trips to the store and a number of
arguments differences of opinion–and by the time I was done with the cake I was just so. over. it.
Except that I took a bite and decided it was my new best friend. And I’m not even a fan of chocolate cake.
This cake was to-die-for moist. And the hot chocolate buttercream? Heaven, people. Heaven.

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking. In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
