I shared my birthday cupcake recipe using Paleo Baking Company’s Hazelnut Baking Mix so I thought I’d better share my Perfect Paleo Chocolate Frosting Recipe too! The Espresso powder is the secret – it really sets off the chocolate flavor.
KC the G-Free Foodie‘s Perfect Paleo and Gluten-Free Chocolate Frosting
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Cup Solid Coconut Oil (Not Melted)
1/2 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Raw Cacao Powder or Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Espresso Powder*
1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
Here’s what to do:
Combine ingredients using a stand or hand mixer on low until cocoa powder is incorporated. Then mix on high for 1-2 minutes, or until frosting is smooth.
Frost chilled cake or cupcakes and serve immediately, or keep chilled in the fridge or freezer. Use on whatever baked goods you like!!
*Baker’s Espresso Powder is premium-quality dark, concentrated, finely ground instant coffee. Ground Espresso beans will not work – use more cocoa powder if you don’t have espresso powder.
