IMPORTANT: Please ensure that your TM bowl is completely clean and dry. If necessary, a quick wipe out with a cut lemon may help remove any traces of grease.
Weigh your egg whites and sugar into TM bowl. Mix for 3-4 minutes, temp 60 on speed 3.
Once finished, rub a small amount of the heated egg white and sugar mixture between your fingers - the sugar should be completely dissolved into the egg whites. If you can still feel sugar granules repeat the step above for approx 1 to 2 minutes or until completely dissolved.
Once sugar is completely dissolved insert the butterfly and whip for 10 minutes, no temperature on speed 4. You want to whip the mixture until the bowl is only slightly warm to the touch (the temperature indicator light should only read 37 degrees). The mixture should have doubled in size and be glossy and pure white.
Keep the machine running on speed 3 and start to add your cold, unsalted butter. Small amounts at a time until each addition is whipped in. The process should take between 6-8 minutes. Don't panic if the mixture deflats or starts to look curdled - just keep whipping! The mixture should come back together. If it doesn't - pop it in the fridge to cool down for 20 mins and rewhip on speed 4.
Once all the butter is added, pour in the cool, melted chocolate and whip until light and fluffy.
The buttercream can be used immediately (excellent for swirls on cupcakes). It will keep in the fridge for approx 3-4 days and freezes well. Just bring back to room temperature and rewhip with butterfly inserted on speed 4.
