This vegan chocolate frosting is so easy and only requires two ingredients! You can also make it paleo and frost all your favorite baked goods.




  1. Use the double boiler method to melt the chocolate and coconut cream by filling a small saucepan with an inch of water. Then place a heat-safe bowl over the top of the saucepan.
  2. Into the heat-safe bowl add the chocolate chips and coconut cream.
  3. Bring the water to a boil to gently stir occasionally, until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Remove the bowl from the heat and chill the bowl for 45 minutes in the fridge.
  5. Remove the bowl from the fridge and stir the frosting with a whisk until smooth. The consistency should be like a thick pudding.
  6. Spread the frosting over your favorite completely cooled cupcakes such as these Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes.
  7. Once you’ve frosted your baked goods store them in a cool place so the frosting won’t melt. You can keep your frosted baked goods covered on a cool counter for a day or up to a week in the fridge. Enjoy!


*Double the recipe if using for just the layers of a 2 layer cake. Triple the recipe for a 2 layer cake if you want to also frost the sides.

*If the frosting gets too thick in the fridge warm it again over the double boiler for 30-60 seconds, just until it stirs easily again, once smooth you can then frost your cupcakes.
