This buttercream stands out with a deliciously unmistakable pure vanilla flavor. Use a microwave to melt the white chocolate, making it super simple to prepare.

  • 6 ounces of White Chocolate, broken in pieces in a microwave safe bowl. I recommend Ghirardelli brand chocolate.
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) of Butter
  • 2 cups of Powdered Sugar
  • 1/4 cup of Half and Half
  • 1 pinch of Salt
  • 1.5 teaspoons of Pure Vanilla Extract


  • In a microwave, safe bowl, melt white chocolate on high at 20 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until chocolate is completely smooth and melted. Once smooth and melted, set aside for 20 minutes to cool.
  • In a stand mixer, using the paddle attachment, whip one cup of softened butter on medium speed for one minute.
  • Next, set the mixture speed to low, and slowly add in 2 cups of powdered sugar.
  • Add in the cooled White Chocolate. Scrape down the sides of mixture to make sure everything combines evenly.
  • Next, add in half and half, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Whip until nicely combined and fluffy.
