I made a batch of Bob's Red Mill Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate Cupcakes today so of course I had to top them with a delicious chocolate frosting too! Here is my go to chocolate frosting that is of course dairy free and wheat/gluten free.
This is the most decadent and wonderfully chocolate flavored dairy free frosting that I have tried. Plus it is super easy to make with just 4 ingredients!
DAIRY FREE CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING
3/4 cup dairy-free spread
2 2/3 cups powdered sugar
6 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
Put the dairy-free spread in a bowl and sift the powdered sugar and cocoa powder over it.
Add the vanilla extract and gradually work into the spread with a wooden spoon.
Then once it is well incorporated beat with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy.
You might need to work up to 4 tsp of water into the frosting in order to get a soft consistency for spreading.
