Homemade Chocolate Frosting Recipe

I’ve done my fair share of baking over the years, and homemade frosting was one of the first recipes that I was able to made a good version of and memorize. But I was thrown for a loop this weekend when I went to make frosting for my bunny cake and didn’t have all of my normal experiences. Well I was already exhausted and didn’t want to run out again for more, so I just improvised. And it turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself!

Homemade dairy free chocolate frosting recipe

Ingredients Needed: 
4 cups of powdered sugar
8-12 tablespoons (aka 1/2-3/4 cup) of cocoa
10 tablespoons (aka 1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons) of butter or vegan butter, softened
2-4 tablespoons of water (add as little or as much as you want to achieve the desired textured)


1. Sift the powdered sugar and cocoa together
2. Cream the butter
3. Add the sugar mixture to the butter and stir
4. Add the water 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing after each, until you have reached the desired texture.

This will make enough to frost 2 layers of 8″ cake! Enjoy!
