Dairy Free Baker's Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
4 squares Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate
1 stick Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Alternative
4 cups or 1 lb powdered sugar
1/2 cup Vanilla Silk Pure Almond Milk
Melt the chocolate in the microwave or using a double boiler.
Allow the chocolate to cool slightly - about 5 minutes.
Cube the buttery alternative and stir into the chocolate.
Stir in the powdered sugar in a few installments.
Switch from a spoon or spatula and begin to mix using a hand held electric mixer.
Slowly add the almond milk as you mix until the frosting becomes lighter and a spreadable consistency.
Note that you may not need to use all of the almond milk or you might need a little more to achieve the desired consistency.
I like for the frosting to have little speckles of chocolate flakes running through it so I use buttery alternative straight from the refrigerator. If you want a more even color and texture then allow the buttery alternative to come to room temperature before using.
