Chocolate Frosting Shots

FrostingYes you read that right.

I’m going to share with you a healthy alternative to chocolate frosting, and you seriously wouldn’t know the difference.

I found this recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie. Katie had been determined to fit dessert in her daily life, with out all the added guilt, refined sugars and calories. I seriously suggest you check out her blog, and her new book, Chocolate-Covered Katie: Over 80 Delicious Recipes That Are Secretly Good for You.

When making this recipe, it is important you use a good brand of coconut milk (I like Thai Kitchen), and use full fat.

Katie’s recipes can be catered to your dietary needs or preferences, as I prefer to use honey than sugar. I also found it gave a creamier texture this way. Don’t worry if your mixture looks nothing like frosting! I poured mine into individual serving mason jars, and stored them in the fridge. Overnight, I was beyond myself when I dipped my spoon in this heavenly rich frosting.
