Chocolate Frosting

easy dairy free chocolate frosting
 

Recently, while making our dairy and egg free vanilla cake,

I decided to make chocolate frosting instead of our usual vanilla.

Because really, dessert should always involve chocolate!

The frosting turned out so rich and delicious that I quickly jotted down the new recipe to share.

I couldn’t let this creation slip away into the abyss of all recipes I forget to write down.

That’s a bad habit of mine.

Anyone else?

Not only is this frosting great for cakes,

but nursing mamas may find this to be a good chocolate substitute while trying to cut out dairy.

This would also make a wonderful chocolate substitute for smores.

To make this soy-free, use Melt dairy-free butter or Earth Balance’s soy-free option.
