Simple Vegan Chocolate Frosting Recipe

If you need a vegan chocolate frosting, there is no need to head out to the store. If you purchase the store-bought ones, you are likely to find ingredients in it that you may not want, such as hydrogenated oils. Making vegan chocolate frosting at home is super simple. This recipe is for a vegan chocolate frosting, or you can use it as a vegan chocolate ganache. Whether you are using it to frost a cake, cupcakes or cookies, it is simple and sure to please!

Here is what you will need to make a simple vegan chocolate frosting:

28 ounces of vegan chocolate bars
1/3 cup of vegan milk (e.g., soy, almond, coconut, etc.)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla

You will need to melt the vegan chocolate. You can do this either by using a double boiler on the stove or by using the microwave. If you are using the microwave, set it to cook for 10 seconds, stop and stir, then repeat until all the vegan chocolate has melted. Once the vegan chocolate has melted, either in a double boiler or in the microwave, add the milk and vanilla and stir thoroughly. At this point, the vegan chocolate frosting will be warm, but cool enough to start spreading on your cake or using on your other baked goods.

For the vegan chocolate bars that you need to make the frosting, you may want to try our dark semisweet bars, which come six to a pack, or milkless-the bar, which also comes in a six-pack. Both options work well in this recipe to create a vegan chocolate frosting that you can use in a variety of ways. And if you are feeling a little more adventurous, consider using our polar dream white chocolate bar. With this option, you can choose the color of your chocolate frosting!

  1. So, if my math still works correctly - to make this recipe, I would need to purchase 16 bars of dark chocolate bars (50g each)... and so, at the new marketing price for ONLY 5 bars per bundle... I would need 4 bundles (using 16 bars out of the 20 bars) and so just the one ingredient would cost $43.80 cents! Who in their right mind would even harbor such a thought... let alone make this!! This recipe is not for your average homemaker!!
