Paleo Chocolate Frosting

Hi all,

Here’s a delicious, healthy ish frosting recipe.  Ideal for cupcakes (especially on these moist, fudgy Paleo ones), cakes, you name it.  I was stunned this is a mostly Paleo recipe.  Yet it tastes creamy, sugary, thick, like a real deal version of chocolate frosting.  Enjoy!  This might become your new go-to 😉

Ingredients

About 1 cup of chocolate chips (I like Enjoy Life brand which are dairy and soy free)

1/4 cup of coconut milk (not the kind in a can.  The kind you drink.  Almond milk works too).

About 1/4 cup of coconut oil

About 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

Note: when I say “about,” this means get close to that amount.  Give or take a bit wont make a huge difference.

  1. Melt all four of the ingredients above in a saucepan over medium heat.  Stir regularly as they melt together.
  2. Once melted, remove from heat (Do not let the liquid start boiling.  As soon as all melted together, its done).
  3. Put the saucepan with melted chocolate frosting in the fridge to cool.  Leave in there for 30-45 minutes.  Now, here is the important, integral part.  Every 5-6 minutes, stir the frosting.  This will keep it the right texture for spreading when the time comes.
  4. Frosting should be thick but still creamy and of a nice texture within 30-45 minutes or so.  Essentially, you are letting it cool and stirring it periodically (every few minutes or so) until it becomes a good frosting texture.  Just watch a TV series episode or surf the internet while you’re doing it.
  5. If you forget and let it sit too long, hence, the frosting becomes too hard?  Put it over low heat again just until it softens a bit.  Then put back in the fridge and stir every couple minutes again until its ready to go.
  6. Sounds complicated.  It isn’t.  Super easy, no big deal.  I had to restrain myself from eating the frosting as is.  Mouthwateringly delicious.
  7. Enjoy!  I recommend this on the Paleo Chocolate Cupcakes I made the other night that were a rousing success 😀 Get excited for this tasty treat.
