Say hello to the frosting of your dreams. Made in 1 bowl with just 4 wholesome ingredients, you’re going to want to slather this chocolate decadence on everything!

The first time I made it I found myself downing spoonfuls like it was pudding. I mean, it does kind of taste like chocolate pudding but the texture is a little thicker, more like a frosting, in my opinion.

So let’s talk about how simple it is to make. All you need is almond butter, cocoa powder, dairy-free milk and a bit of pure maple syrup. You melt the almond butter in a large bowl until it’s nice and drippy. Then you add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir until it has a silky smooth consistency.

That’s pretty much all there is to it! The hardest part is resisting eating the whole bowl at once. :)

Now I haven’t tried this with substitutions for the almond butter but I’m sure cashew butter, peanut butter, or even sunflower butter would work the same. Of course the flavor will vary a little with each but you can adjust for that by adding more sweetener or salt, if desired.

For ease of stirring, I recommend sticking with pure maple syrup. If you’re not vegan you could probably get away with using honey but you would need to melt it with the almond butter so that it’s incorporates evenly and doesn’t leave you with a chunky frosting.

This chocolate frosting is perfect for spreading on top of cakes, brownies, cupcakes, or cookies. I’ve been known to dip graham crackers in it too for a quick little treat. Just beware, it’s hard to stop once you start!
