Chocolate Butter

Real Simple Magazine's Chocolate Butter is like a spreadable truffle.

Ecole Chocolat note: We also recommend this recipe as a quick and easy dessert. Create a dessert "bruschetta" your guests will love by passing warm, toasted baguette slices, and make it even more decadent by adding a drizzle of flavorful olive oil and a sprinkling of flaked or other sea salt. Or pass toasted pound cake slices warm from the oven, spread with the chocolate butter and top with a spoonful of raspberry jam

Yield: 1/2 cup

½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted, or make it even better with your favorite dark chocolate bar, chopped
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
Sea salt

Beat butter, melted chocolate chips, cocoa powder, and a pinch salt with an electric mixer until smooth, about 1 minute. Serve at room temperature.
