Dark Chocolate Frosting Recipe (Dairy free and Vegan)
Posted on December 9, 2007
Who says you need milk or butter for a great frosting? This dark chocolate frosting recipe is creamy and works great on brownies, cupcakes, or cake.
(Note: Because regular powdered sugar is not a vegan ingredient due to the processing methods used, strict vegans will need to either make their own powdered sugar or purchase a vegan powdered sugar such as Hain Organic Powdered Sugar)
3 oz. semi-sweet dairy-free dark chocolate chips
2 tsp Earth Balance vegan butter (or brand of your choice)
1/4 c. water
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Melt chocolate chips and vegan butter over low heat. Add water. Stir in sugar slowly while mixing until it reaches a smooth, buttery consistency.
Add the vanilla and stir. Let cool a bit before using.
