Healthy Chocolate Frosting

This healthier alternative to store-bought frosting tastes like what you’d get if you melted a Reeses peanut butter cup and slathered it thickly onto the top of a cupcake. Or ate it straight off the spoon.

NO corn syrup, NO shortening, NO trans fat – just creamy, dreamy, rich chocolate frosting you can slather on absolutely everything!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter or allergy-friendly alternative
  • 4-8 tsp pure maple syrup (click for a [sugar-free alternative | http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2011/10/12/chocolate-banana-split-butter/]
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 4 tsp milk of choice, or more for thinner frosting
  • 3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional: handful of chocolate chips (the "pieces")

Instructions

Blend everything (including chips, if using) in a small food processor or Magic Bullet. If you have a bigger processor, it might be best to double the recipe so everything blends more smoothly. Best to store uneaten frosting covered in the fridge.

Substitution notes: If you don’t like—or can’t have—peanut butter, feel free to try this recipe with almond butter, cashew butter, sunbutter, or maybe even coconut butter! Agave can be subbed for the maple syrup. I haven’t tried a stevia version, nor have I tried the healthy frosting recipe with pb2 or better’n pb. Try those substitutions at your own risk. This healthy frosting recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and free of refined sugar.

Try this frosting on a One-Minute Chocolate Cake.

    Made me smile: My morning coffee at my favorite Starbucks with the world’s coolest baristas! Love it.

    1. Kit-Kat says:

      Starbucks is the friendliest coffee shop ever!!!

      1. Anonymous says:

        Where do y’all live? My Starbucks girls are kind of snotty. :-(

      2. claudia says:

        Try a local place instead! Better coffee, maybe better service too! I’ve had luck at the local, fair trade coffee places near by (:

      3. Lauren says:

        Isn’t there anyone that doesn’t like coffee? I like chocolate instead. ❤️

    2. In the frosting I used the new PB2 and it was perfect. PB2 has 85% less fat than peanut butter. 1/4 cup powder mixed with 2 Tbsp water to make 1/4 cup peanut butter. I didn’t need to add any milk to the recipe.

      Great recipe, Katie!

      1. Bridget says:

        Thanks Wendy! I JUST opened my delivery of 3 lbs of PB2. And after this weekend’s indulgences, I looking forward to a kinder way to answer my body’s 3 o’clock sweet craving. 😉

  2. Amanda says:

    This recipe made me smile! :) Also tomorrow. Im a bridesmaid in one of my closest friend’s wedding. I couldn’t be happier for her.

  3. Samantha says:

    One thing quick? Being asked that question. :)

    …then I started reflecting on this recipe and eating it, that it is Friday, my puppy…all the good things. :)

  4. Liz says:

    this recipe makes me smile!

  5. Made me smile: someone’s Facebook status … “May the 4th be with you”

    Enjoy your Friday (and May the 4th be with you)!

  6. Heather says:

    This recipe makes me smile! I’m still drooling since seeing the teaser picture yesterday and now I get to make some frosting when I get home from work. Thanks for the recipe, Katie!

  7. I just pinned this to try – looks amazing. I’d love to do a sugar-free version with stevia and maple extract.

    Today I am smiling because I leave for the Blend Retreat! :)

    1. Bella says:

      Tell us how it came out Laura! Im interested!!

  8. YUM!

    One thing that made me smile was the outpouring of support my friends & family gave me when I launched my new company’s FB page today 😀

  9. Miss M says:

    MY NEW PUPPY! Can’t stop smiling 😀

    And that looks goooooood.

  10. seeing the title of this post immediately made me excited. :) this sounds SO good and looks so easy too!

  11. oh no! this looks dangerous :) I’ll have to whip this up next time I make one of your mini cakes!

    One thing that made me smile today is waking up to a text message from Dallas. He’s away from home a lot from April-September, and right now he’s in Idaho and we can’t afford to talk on the phone or text so it’s really hard. Having even just one text message to wake up to definitely made me smile :)

    Happy Friday, Katie!!

  12. Patricia says:

    Couldn’t you just eat Peanut Butter & Co’s Dark Chocolate Dreams or White Chocolate Wonderful instead? lol

    1. Lisa says:

      I do love that one, but I just made this frosting and have to say that it’s even better! And the texture is much more “frosting-y” than the DCD which is more thick and like a pb spread. Does that make any sense? I bet this one’s cheaper too, in the long run!

  13. Ooooh yum, great recipe, I will have to make this soon! :)

    Doesn’t get top spot for things that made me smile today though – that goes to cuddling my friend’s 4 day-old baby…so tiny, so cute!! 😀

  14. Kiersten says:

    Being woken up by my crazy puppy :)
    Mmm! That looks delicious. Guess what I’m making today?

  15. this looks sooo good! and whatdya know, I have ALL of the ingredients in my pantry….this makes for a good Friday, in my opinion!! :)

    1. Karen says:

      Me too! I actually just made it! Currently I’m cursing the fact that I’ve lost even one tiny drop in the blender. It is THAT good.

      Now if only I had something to go under this frosting…
      Oh who cares? I’m happy to just eat it like mousse. Katie, I love it!

      1. Lisa says:

        I’m eating it straight off the spoon. I have always loved chocolate and pb, so why I never thought to make my own (cheaper) PB&Co frosting is beyond me. I love how Katie seems to reach into our minds and figure out exactly what we’re craving and make a simple recipe from it that anyone can do!
        I’d stay and chat, but there’s more frosting in my Magic Bullet ;).

  16. Yum that looks great! I probably would have eaten it from the bowl…woops!

  17. Jennifer says:

    I work in an elementary school, and today a little girl in kindergarten told me that she really liked my name and my shirt. It was very sweet and it made me smile.

  18. Dawn says:

    Thank you for posting this one!!! I am going to make it right now!

  19. Rachel says:

    Seeing Reeses Pieces Fudge Frosting as the recipie for tday:)

  20. Åsa says:

    Went for a really lovely run this morning and it was perfect running weather, slightly cloudy but almost sunny, and cool but not cold. That made me smile. Also, today’s recipe prompted me to simply mix some cocoa powder into my almond butter and eat it with a spoon… Which was yummy, so that also made me smile….

  21. Amy says:

    Thankyouthankyouthankyou! Or rather, my Mom will thank you when I put this on her mother’s day cupcakes! She LOVES reese’s cups. :) Now I just have to decide what kind of cupcakes to make to put it on lol

    1. Lisa says:

      Ooh tough decision! Go with chocolate! Chocolate always wins!

      1. Amy says:

        Thats definitely what I’m leaning towards, dark chocolate cupcakes with reese’s frosting. She will be in heaven! 😀

      2. Hannah says:

        It almost makes us all wish we were your mother!

  22. Lisa says:

    My favorite thing about your blog is how I almost ALWAYS have all the ingredients to make whatever it is you post!

    Going to go make this now! Will report back soon :).

    1. Lisa says:

      And it is delicious! :)

      Katie, really, I can’t thank you enough for all the hard work you put into your blog each day, especially answering all the questions I send your way. I can’t tell you how many bloggers never answer my emails or recipe questions :*(

      1. Kit-Kat says:

        Aww, that’s tough!

  23. The first thing I was today that made me smile was the picture of Chooclate. I am going to have to make this soon it’s calling my name.

  24. Aja says:

    I have to make cupcakes now so I can put tons of it all over them. Or just make it and eat the bowl. Mmm, I might have to.

  25. Em says:

    Want!!! Your photos are always the best!!!
    And the recipes, too. We made your chocolate fudge pie last night for the 1082094376539th time :)

  26. Leslie says:

    Is it sad that I took your post literally?

    The photo is now my computer background. Not even joking! :)

  27. Juliana says:

    My mom brought me home a new blender!!!! 😀 “Ice Cream” time!!!

  28. Bree ltc says:

    Definite smile from reading the following. Saw it as an update status on FB a few times. I agree!

    “May the 4th be with you!”

  29. Finishing my second out of 3 finals is making me smile right now!

  30. Jennifer says:

    This recipe made me smile!

    And my dissertation director calling himself a “plant daddy.” The one (and only) plant in question is two pieces of lucky bamboo that he got last week.

  31. Oh wow, this looks and sounds amazing!!! I actually made your one-minute chocolate cake for dessert last night (and it was delicious!) but I ate it without frosting. I think I might have to try it again tonight with this on top!! Yum!

    One thing that made me smile today was watching a little bit of “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry” at the gym – that movie is pretty hilarious.

  32. Lauren says:

    Looks awesome! Can’t wait to try it…maybe on your fudge daddies?

  33. 1. this recipe
    2. my breakfast of a chocolate peanut butter banana shake: http://thesweetlifeonline.blogspot.com/2012/05/chocolate-peanut-butter-banana-milk.html
    3. the sunshine and a good morning walk

  34. Looks phenomenal Katie. I am always able to make naturally sweetened low-sugar baked goods like cakes and muffins, but struggle to find many healthy low-sugar, naturally sweetened alternatives to frosting. I also really appreciate you offering alternatives to PB – as much as I love it, I am actually about to ice a chocolate bundt cake I made for a party and don’t know if there might be someone attending who is allergic. Alternatives are fab, thank you!

    1. Emily says:

      Agreed. I’m allergic to pb and don’t like almond butter. Even though I know I can just sub when a recipe calls for pb, it’s nice to actually be specifically mentioned for once. Makes me not feel so lonesome ;). Thanks for not forgetting us, Katie!

      1. Liz says:

        What about cashews? They’re slightly sweet and blend up creamy!

  35. Janice says:

    Omg….. You never cease to surprise me with your recipes.

  36. Emily says:

    I think these photos are my favorites of any you’ve ever taken! And that’s sayinh something because I ADORE your photos! Plus the recipes don’t suck either ;).

  37. Kit-Kat says:

    Being accepted to Ave Maria University made me smile…. however, I was also accepted to Christendom College in Virginia, and now I can’t decide which college to choose! (I got a scholarship for Ave Maria… making it tougher! I love Virginia, but I’ve never been to Florida :-/ )

  38. Samantha says:

    Wow. This has been great to read some of the things that made people happy today…there is some great news and happenings out there. It kind of bumps up overall happiness to here other people’s happiness. :)

    Such a little question and such nice results.

  39. Yummmm! The fact that tomorrow is Saturday is making me smile!

  40. Katie says:

    This looks delicious as always! Thanks for sharing your wonderful desserts :)

  41. Emilia says:

    I can’t wait to make this. In fact, it’s my birthday tomorrow, I think I’ll have some then. So many things have made me smile today, but mostly it was the large bouquet of flowers my parents sent me. I gotta say, this recipe also made me burst into a huge grin as well! :)

  42. Sapphire says:

    Snuggling up with my youngest son as I got him down for his nap made me smile :)

    I’m going to try the recipe asap!

  43. Sara says:

    What made me smile?

    My afternoon snack: Your one-minute chocolate cake topped with THIS frosting! It was really, really good! I can’t stop smiling :) :) :) :) :) :).

    1. Sara says:

      And now I want some more :).

  44. Anat says:

    I was dissappointed when I saw that you are publishing this recipe. BUT when I saw the recipe and the substitution note I was happy!
    I can’t eat pb, but I can eat any other nut (I love cashew <3 ).

    Well, the truth is that what really made me happy in this post is the beautiful tsp. I'm a frik of kitchen gadgets and kitchen tools :) :)

    1. Kit-Kat says:

      Why are you dissappointed about her publishing this recipe? That does not make any sense!!!

  45. Sunnie says:

    Ooops. I licked my screen by accident . . .

  46. Mandie says:

    Actually, one thing that just made me smile today was your question! :-)

    But another thing was seeing you first photo on this post! I love chocolate & pb together!

    Thanks for the recipe, Katie! I will definitely put it on my ‘to try soon’ list 😉

    1. Mandie says:

      I meant “your”…. ugg…. My fingers type faster than my brain can think!

  47. HOLY YUM!!! I can’t believe how easy this is Katie!! Makes me wonder why I never thought of it. I am dreaming up things to spread this all over… baked donuts, graham crackers w/ a toasted marshmallow, cupcakes, cakes, as a filling for cinnamon buns, as a dip for bananas…. mmm!

  48. MaryV says:

    Yum! I used cold coffee instead of the milk to make a mini-batch and topped a warm One-Minute Chocolate Cake from your recipe. Heaven…

  49. Venna says:

    ssssssssssssssoooo stunning!!

  50. Anonymous says:

    you make clean eating tolerable!! thank you!!

  51. k says:

    In the midst of a busy downtown street, I walked by some beautiful smelling lilacs (:

  52. The frosting definitely made me smile! 😉 As did several of the kids I was working with today … you just have to smile when you’re working with kids!

  53. Looks fantastic! That would make a tempting screen saver, although it might increase my chocolate cravings 😉

    Being a Friday today made me smile! :)

    and it’s a long weekend here- Wahoo!!!

  54. Amy says:

    This is Delish!! I just made it and tried it out with some pretzels…..thanks for a great, easy recipe!

  55. Felicia says:

    I just read this post six minutes ago and I’ve already made/eaten it. Yum!

  56. Moni Meals says:

    thanks katie! You make me day everyday. and yes I have a smile on my face. :)
    xo

  57. Charlotte says:

    That it’s Friday! And that I got my flirt on with a really cute guy at Starbucks today. 😉

  58. Hanna says:

    Its now my official screen saver! But besides the chocolate picture I actually do have a question. I have noticed that when i look a recipe on the actual posts I never seem to find it on the recipe pages. Like with ferrero ice cream. You had it as a link to a recent post but I tried to find it on the recipe page and it wasnt there. I was wondering if maybe you could update your recipe page, because theres A LOT of stuff thats not on it. It would really be appreciated! :)

    1. The ferrero rocher ice cream is actually there. I just double checked :)

      The only ones that are missing are the newer ones. I generally go in about once every week or so and update. It’s hard to keep it up-to-date!

  59. Heather says:

    I totally made this already….yummo!! I put it on top of chocolate brownies I made from the joy of vegan baking, I loved it made it with agave and little less than what was called for. Only problem is husband’s sweet tastes are much different than mine, while I liked the less sweet flavor he thought it was to bland oh well more for me…. :)

    1. That’s something I struggle with when I write my recipes. People have differing levels of sweet tooth… I also have to remember that I tend to like things a heck of a lot saltier than most people! That’s not a problem for the sweet recipes, but when I do savory ones I have to keep that in mind.

  60. Steph says:

    Chocolate and I have a love-hate relationship. I love it, but I can never have enough of it!

    One thing that made me smile: my friend when she said she was going to go eat, so we went together :)

  61. Jennifer says:

    You make me smile, Katie. This is the first time I’ve commented, but I just wanted to let you know that I heart you and your blog :)

  62. wow, that’s so creative! So yummy too! :)

  63. Sinead says:

    omg that looks so lush, will def be trying this – anything with peanut butter and chocolate makes me ridiculously happy 😀

  64. Kristina says:

    anyone cut their tongue trying to lick every bit off the magic bullet blades? 😛

  65. Brianna says:

    i’ve tried quite a few of your recipes with pb2 and they’ve all worked great! Sometimes you need to adjust the water a bit. the fact the sun is out this morning after a week of rain makes me smile!

  66. Can I have a spoonful of this right now? Totlly diggin’ it.

  67. Danielle says:

    Hi CCK,
    I recently found your blog through pinterest and I love it! I’ve been gluten free for about 6 years, but recently just found out my body doesn’t like dairy either. I figured it was good bye to good tasting food. I have made several of your recipes and they have all turned out great! Even my traditional meat and potatoes husband has asked me when we are making your deep dish chocolate cookie pie again! Thanks for all of your hard work and sharing your amazing recipes with us!

    p.s. my dog makes me smile. He is a silly APBT who always manages to make me laugh with his crazy antics :)

  68. Danielle says:

    Sounds wonderful, will have to give this a try… and I only use pb2 so I’ll let you know how that substitution works out! :-)

  69. Jules says:

    can you sub chocolate syrup instead of maple syrup?

  70. Yum, yum, yum! I am going to make this the next time I need frosting, which is now! What a great recipe Katie! Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

  71. Michelle says:

    Watching my kids at swim lessons this morning and now this. I was waiting to see this. YUM!!!!

  72. Debbie says:

    Wow – this is amazing! I just made it and it never made it to a cake! Thank you Katie!!!!!

  73. Claire says:

    Made me smile: boyfriend serenading me with Sinatra over Skype. :)

    Makes me smile all the time: your recipes! I also saved one of the pictures of this to send him – he’s a choco-pb fiend.

  74. Jennifer says:

    looks delicious, and I could totally sit and eat it by the spoonful :)

  75. lyss says:

    Mmm…this looks good. Will totally be eating this by the spoonful. I often mix up coconut oil, maple syrup, and cocoa powder for a quick I-need-chocolate fix. :)

  76. megan says:

    give us the new pancake recipe!!!!! Please!

  77. Haylee says:

    Oh my gosh seriously right now? That looks AMAZING and I’m not even a fan of frosting. You’ve definitely impressed me again creative Katie.

  78. My students in music made me smile today :) Actually, my students make me smile everyday that I see them!

  79. Um this recipe pretty much just made my day.

  80. Brooke says:

    Love love love this recipe! I Made it for 1 minute chocolate cake and had extra so I put it in the refrigerator then put it on toast later. It was sooo good! Then I made more and put it in a bowl and froze it and it tasted like peanut butter chocolate fudge! Thank you so much for the recipe!

  81. Alex says:

    Just made this—DELICIOUS!!!
    You’re a genius :)

  82. Jules says:

    One thing that made me smile? My husband’s been wrapped up in a video editing project, so I took myself to the park with a blanket, a good book, the most recent issue of Vegetarian Times, and a bubble tea. I loved watching the parents playing and running around with their kids in the afternoon sunshine!

  83. Sahar says:

    Just made this and put it on top of a chocolate chip peanut butter blondie cake for my vegan guests tonight! You’re a genius Katie! I’m obsessed! Thank you for all your amazing recipes 😀

  84. Allison says:

    I love frosting! So now I officially kind of love you..
    Besides this recipe, my kitty Hester made me smile.

  85. girlfriend, reese’s pieces are chocolate-free. i point this out because i get in fights with my friends about it all the time. reese’s pieces are peanut butter with a candy shell. peanut butter m&ms have PB AND chocolate (the greatest combination on the planet) and are therefore superior. just saying.

    1. Mindi says:

      That’s why it’s Reese’s pieces fudge, the fudge is the chocolate.

      1. Fudge does not equal chocolate. says:

        Definition of fudge: A soft rich candy made of sugar, milk, butter, and flavoring.

  86. A long time ago, when I first became vegan, a friend of mine who lived in a very hippie-vegan area gave me a similar recipe: equal parts cocoa powder, nut butter, and maple syrup. I’ve played with the porportions a bit, but it’s always delicious!

  87. Jen says:

    I cut this recipe in half and made it today–and it is amazing! Completely cured my chocolate craving. It is a million times better than the dark chocolate dreams peanut butter in a jar. I know I’ll be making it again–what an awesome option for frosting that isn’t drowing in butter and powdered sugar. Thanks!

  88. Monique says:

    You’re adorable little puppies made me smile, they remind me of my old dog.
    I also got so excited for a split second. I saw the first picture without reading the title and it looked like the cover of a cookbook. I thought you’re big announcement this month might be a cookbook ( that would have made me really smile)

    1. Aww thank you!! And there IS a cookbook in the works :) :).

  89. Taina says:

    The taste of this frosting made me smile! As soon as I saw the picture I smiled, then the realization that I had all the ingredients had me bolting to the kitchen. 5 minutes later… BIG smile! I love your blog Katie! (I’m a longtime lurker and firsttime commenter ^_^)

  90. Taina says:

    also, my food processor is of the tiny and cheap variety… this may have been the first time it was the right size for a recipe lol :) I’m thinking of getting a Magic Bullet, just because you seem to love yours and get such nice results from it! btw, some of my faves among your recipes are the cookie dough dip and the oatmeal raisin breakfast cookie. For the latter, I usually sub chocolate chips for the raisins :) and add ground flax, a little nutmeg and a bunch of toasted nuts & coconut. soooooooooooo good!

    1. You just made ME smile :).

      P.S. If you have a Costco near you, they currently have Bullets on sale for $30!

  91. Debbie Groll says:

    Katie, Katie, Katie!! I made this today with PB2…omg… it is still amazing!!! I also made it yesterday with regular pb and added greek yogurt! This is a keeper! You are the best! This might finally be my healthy chocolate fix!!! Yippeee!!!

  92. Ashley says:

    Katie!!! I found your blog just recently… I LOVE YOU! ♥ haha I am currently trying to lose weight, and your recipes are so healthy, and best of all….you have chocolate chocolate CHOCOLATE! :) I was super happy to see all these healthy alternatives and they were smaller portions which is really nice for me because I don’t like to have a ton of something because i will eat it all…not good! I’ve made this frosting twice now. Amazing! I just wish i could finds me some unsweetened coconut soon so i can make your recipes that call for it!

  93. Larisa says:

    Hey,

    It would be great if your recipe can be added throug ZipList..There are so many things I would like to try, but I dont always remember what exactly :)

  94. evelyn says:

    i made this like a couple of minutes ago. THAT made me happy. it was beyond delicious. oh my goodness. mmmmmmm. if you havn’t made it….MAKE IT NOW! it’s so good!

  95. Kat says:

    It seriously has to be you. I’ve completely changed my eating since October, and I get through some of the low times looking at your recipes. Sometimes I make them, but most times just knowing that there’s desserts that I can have readily accessible helps me out. I can’t explain it – it’s like I calm down/get through just knowing it’s there. So thanks, my dear, for this great blog and helping so many of us out.

  96. Elizabeth says:

    I made this today also. Put it on CCK’s BrowniePpancakes. Nothing could have been more perfect!
    Since I am trying to get used to things less sweet, I used 2 Tbs of syrup and it tasted phenominal. I might even start with 1 Tbs next time.

  97. Andrea says:

    I made this without a blender, just mixing everything with a fork. It was so delicious! And then I didn’t want to dilute the flavor by putting it on anything, so I just ate it as is :)

  98. Kris says:

    This was awesome, similar to the fudgies my mom used to make us when we were kids. So I made a second batch to put on a cake for my mom, for Mother’s Day.

    Oh, and I found an easier way to make the “pieces:” crunchy peanut butter!

    1. Oh wow, I like your idea even better!

  99. I Made it and topped vanilla cupcakes :) everyone loved it!!

  100. Pete Nott says:

    That looks so good!
    I love Reese’s though I find the added sugar to the peanut butter an overkill, I quite like the whole saltiness of the nut butter vs the sweetness of the chocolate. This looks perfect, will add it to my recipe box.

  101. Tiffany says:

    I made your chocolate cake into mini cupcakes and topped with the Reeses frosting and gave them to my sister for mothers day. She loved them, and the frosting is scary good! Thanks so much for the recipes. Oh and my non vegan husband actually liked the protein fries! I had just taken them out of the oven and left them on the counter. He didn’t know what they were but he said they smelled good so he ate them!

  102. Felicia says:

    You’re right: this tastes just like a peanut butter cup melted. Mmm!

    I featured it at the end of this blog post:
    http://dimplesinthekitchen.blogspot.com/2012/05/fat-free-banana-bread.html

  103. Oh my gosh. I want some of that SO badly!!!!

  104. Karen says:

    Sorry, but I think you made a mistake with this recipe. You posted it like it was any old recipe, not giving enough attention to how amazing it is and stressing that each reader really should try it! I think you should amend it. :)
    I only have a large food processor, so I heated it until just warm in the microwave so it would mix well. No blender/mixer/bullet/processor needed. We love it!

    1. LOL you scared me at first! :) :)

  105. laura says:

    Any ideas if cane sugar and a little bit of water would work instead of maple syrup or agave?

    Okay, so I substituted the maple syrup for powdered sugar and extra milk, and it turned out perfectly. Except, I just saw that this was supposed to make 8 servings? I feel kinda like a chub now because I used most of it on the one minute chocolate cake, then ate the rest with a knife. Although, I didn’t make as much as in your picture, so I may have done less of something. I was able to just stir this together with a knife(without the choc chips) then I stuck it in the microwave for 15 seconds. After that, in the chips went! The consistency was perfect, and totally like a melted reese’s.

    1. Alanna says:

      Lol don’t feel bad… I just made a half batch (4 servings)? and ate it all on a pizzert! Oink, oink, oink’ haha. This frosting is awesome, and so easy to make (even easier since I was lazy and stirred everything in a bowl instead of the blender!).

  107. queenoffitness says:

    something that tastes this good should be considered illegal in all 50 states. OMG. i could have swam in this frosting. i used choc PB2 and it worked great. you just need to reconstitute it and turn it into pb before mixing it. i used my magic bullet short cup. i had to double the recipe because i added more cocoa powder than i needed. mine was really fluid so i just added more of the pb2 powder to thicken it up some. i smothered my one-minute cake it and with that my chocolate craving was squashed.

  108. Kylie says:

    I did a stevia version of this and It worked out just dandy for me!! It definitely does have a taste of reeses pieces to it when you think about it! I think its yummy..but I’m like you I like stuff really rich so it didn’t much stevia to hit the spot…even with unsweetened chocolate chips and unsweetened peanut butter!! :)

  109. Mallory says:

    I just made this and it tasted JUST like Reeses Pieces!!! So delicious! Even my bf loved it! And best of all its vegan!!! 😀

  110. My baby made me smile :) It is easy to think of something that makes me smile these days :)

    I have a question. Is it the maple syrup and peanut butter that thickens the frosting? My family loves chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. I found your recipe for cauliflower chocolate cake and I would love to make a healthier peanut butter frosting, but I don’t know what to substitute for the powdered sugar.

  111. Pam says:

    There is no powdered sugar in the recipe. This frosting is yummy made exactly the way Katie describes in her recipe above.

  112. tawkingjames says:

    2 girls 1 cup…….. hahahaha sorry, I had to.

  113. LIl says:

    Finding your blog and recipes…desserts and…healthy! This made me smile today! Thank you!

    1. Your comment just made ME smile. So now we’re even ;).

  114. Jessasaurus says:

    We have nut allergies so I used Sunbutter, and instead of the maple syrup I used some mashed banana–it was totally delicious!!!! my mom used to keep chocolate frosting in the fridge and we would sneak bites of it when we were craving chocolate (from a chapter in my life i like to call “how to gain a million pounds without even trying”) this was every bit as delicious and satisfying with NONE of the guilt (and none of the bloaty fatty feelings afterward.) THANKS!!!

  115. Ignace says:

    Can you substitude honey for the Maple Syrup?

    1. I’m sure you can. The taste will be different, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t still work. :) (Just don’t serve it to strict vegans if you use honey.)

  116. Jordan says:

    Just made this. Used sugar-free maple syrup and chocolate Soy Slender for the milk. Left everything else the same, and it turned out great! I ate a few spoonfuls right away, but I’m planning on slathering the rest on some baked oatmeal tomorrow morning. :) Thanks Katie! You’re wonderful!

  117. Christy says:

    Just made this using Cashew butter and Almond Breeze Almond Milk/Coconut Milk blend and omitted the chocolate chips. I added one packet of NuNaturals sweetener so I could use less maple syrup and it is fantastic! Tastes just like chocolate frosting but so much healthier! I will definitely try it again sometime with peanut butter….when I am having one of my peanut butter cravings! Thanks!!!

  118. Moll says:

    I just made this, it was sooo good! It tastes (and smells :D) exactly like the reese’s pieces filling! I have to say I’m in love with all your recipes! They make it so easy and simple to enjoy tasty vegan treats 😀

  119. This is soooo good! I made it before I got a blender by just mixing it all together, but it was a little too bitter because the cocoa was still in chunks (hate it when it does that!). I revisited it today because I’m going to slather it all over your Reeses boatmeal tomorrow after my first 1 hour run! I’m super excited… because I really want that boatmeal 😀 I used a little less than 1 packet of stevia (I used some of it for your healthy ketchup!) and just 1 tablespoon of cocoa, and I couldn’t stop eating it! Thank you for this recipe!

    1. Oh, I meant to say that I finally got a blender, and that’s why I revisited the recipe. :)

  120. Sydney says:

    Just tried stirring this in with my oatmeal! YUM!!! And came in under 300 calories all together! Great start to the day. :)

  121. Jeri says:

    Thanks, Katie! Preparing to host a baby shower for a recent vegan convert. What cake would you recommend? I was thinking your carrot cake, but this frosting sounds amazing! Thoughts?

    1. Maybe the “crazy ingredient chocolate” cake (try the pumpkin version)? Or deep-dish cookie pie, or the chocolate bar pie! :)

  122. Sarah says:

    Hello! I love this recipie, thank you so much for sharing! I actually used honey instead of maple syrup and the results were fan-freaking-tastic. It tasted almost exactly like a Reese cup (well in my mind it did, granted havent eaten one of those in ages but i would imagine it would taste just as divine as this). I made a vegan chocolate cake and used splenda instead of sugar and then topped it off with this delicious frosting, so it was almost completly vegan had it not been for the skim milk i used.

  123. Ju says:

    eating this now. soooooo good. mmmmm

  124. Steacy says:

    Katie – can I sub anything for the cocoa powder (i.e. chocolate chips) or just leave it out?

    1. Liz says:

      Leaving it out sounds good. Did you try that? I would like to know how it tastes too! I’m more of a peanut butter girl than a chocolate one. (Sorry Katie ;))

  125. Margesella says:

    Waking up to the sun outside shining brightly made me smile today! I’m going to try this recipe with almond butter and stevia. Katie you are brilliant my friend!!

  126. Sharon says:

    Thank you! I am going to try it with PB2 and add a little espresso powder and put it on chocolate cake made from a mix and club soda only.

  127. Alexa says:

    I’m making this recipe for the 4th or 5th time, and I always at least double it! I use better’n PB, which I usually only use for dessert recipes because I find it so sweet. It comes out SO well with it!! I usually try and keep this to top baked oatmeal etc, but I always end up eating it straight from the jar because it is sooooo good. I find the consistency better after it’s been in the fridge for an hour or two too! Hope that helps.

  128. Sara says:

    The store I went to didn’t carry maple syrup (except blueberry flavoured, which I was in no mood for) so I was forced to sub regular. It was awful, terribly sweet and with a bad after taste. I managed to save it though by adding some melted chocolate.

    1. Liz says:

      I’m confused. Why would you bother to leave a comment about not liking the recipe when you didn’t even make the recipe? That makes no sense.

  129. Conz says:

    This was FIIIIIT!

  130. Rebekah says:

    Oh. My. Gosh. So good

  131. michelle says:

    SO DELICIOUS!! I could eat a bowlful of this every day! Thank you for this recipe!:)

  132. Lin says:

    I LOVE your recipes! Thank you so much!! :) I’ve got to try this one soon,
    What would be really helpful is a “print” button. Every time I want to print a recipe I have to copy it, paste it somewhere else, and print from there.
    Thanks again!

  133. Emily says:

    One thing that made me smile today, and everyday, is my sweet little son :)
    Also, is there anything you can substitute for the “nut” butter. I’m not a huge fan of nuts

  134. Lisa says:

    WOW! I just finished making this frosting for my daughters birthday cake (which I used your Chocolate Cake recipe for) and it is truly amazing. I doubled this recipe like you suggested, just to make sure I had enough for my frosting-loving little family. It came out ultra creamy and absolutely delicious. It is much better than any store-bought frosting. THANK YOU for this recipe. I’m so proud of myself for making her such a great birthday cake and not spending the $35 on the cake I had planned to purchase from Whole Foods : )

  135. Lauren says:

    mmm, delicious! I actually just made this, but instead of using a blender I just whisked it together with a balloon whisk.It worked perfectly, and tastes amazing!

  136. dottie hanna says:

    my hubby.

  137. chantelle says:

    hey! the icing was good but mine was really thic..i kept adding more soy milk but it was just chunky looking, not smooth like yours….my peanut butter is pretty smooth for a natural nut butter….so i spread it on the cake while hot thinking it may melt it more and be smoother, no such luck. what am i doing wrong??

  138. Emily says:

    I just pinned your “Reeces Fudge Frosting” because that actually has to be the greatest recipe idea ever.

    Nom nom nom…

    You rock.

  139. Kristina G says:

    Katie, I just made this frosting a little thicker, rolled it into balls and coated it in coconut oil chocolate…. YUMMMMMMMMY ! Ultimate decadence

  140. Ashley says:

    This frosting is amazing!!! I was too lazy to get out my blender, so I just whisked it together until it was smooth. I will be making this again! Delightful, thank you!!!

  141. Rachel says:

    So excited to try this…, im going through a phase of mini foods :)

  142. Jess says:

    This frosting is delicious! I used almond milk and homemade almond butter for mine and I love it. Thank you!

  143. ElianeSweety says:

    This is THE BEST frosting ever made in this world!!
    Please feel kissed and hugged from me.
    You are AMAZING!!!!
    Thanks A LOT. From me and my family.
    xoxo

  144. AEA says:

    Uneaten frosting? What are you talking about? This is like pudding…it won’t make it back to the fridge…

  145. Samantha says:

    Hi Katie! I used this recipe to frost some brownies I made, wondering if I could post a link to your site on my blog?!
    Thanks!

  146. Elizabeth says:

    so the first time i made this i used maple syrup and i really did not like the way it turned out. second go around, i used agave and OH MY GOD IT IS SO GOOD. like so good i just ate the entire thing with some fudge babies. oops!

  147. Carla says:

    I LOVED this recipe!! It was super easy and YUMMY! :)

    Thanks for the easy-to-follow instructions.

  148. Lindsaur says:

    I made this but subbed honey for the maple syrup (understandably not an option if you’re strict vegan) and added 1/2 scoop of vanilla whey powder. Protein boost and it’s DELICIOUS.

  149. Kathy says:

    I really don’t even know how to describe this. There aren’t enough words to accurately convey how amazingly creamy, chocolately, peanut buttery this was. I think I might die of happiness.

  150. Vee says:

    I just loved this. I needed something sweet and this just hit the spot. I didn’t really measure things, but who needs measures? I just spooned pb into a cup, threw in some cocoa powder and some powdered sugar and some almond milk and ate it right there and then! Yum. Less guilt than normal frosting binges 😉

  151. Lainna Lynn (@LainneBliss) says:

    This frosting seriously blew my mind.

  152. Patti says:

    What is the recipe for the pure maple sugar free syrup?

  153. Marissa says:

    Hi Katie! I just made this frosting and put it on top of your black bean brownies. I told my family they were healthy and they were hesitant to try them. They took one bite and told me it tasted horrible! And by horrible they meant it tasted like it was horrible for you and they couldn’t get enough :) yummmmmy

  154. Rochelle says:

    I just made this frosting recipe, and I love that it’s so simple and delicious. I subbed creamy almond butter for the peanut butter and agave for the maple syrup. It also makes a great chocolate spread that’s much healthier than Nutella.

  155. Liza says:

    Could you use anything except PB or any nut spread :)

    1. What about trying sun butter or coconut butter?

  156. Jess says:

    Made this today and I’ve been dipping pecans in it all day. SO amazing!

  157. Leslie says:

    I just made this to go on a paleo chocolate cake and it is delicious! Really creamy. I’ll have to try it on your one minute chocolate cake which I have made but ate it plain. It was also a winner. But all cake can use good frosting :) Thanks, Katie!

  158. Therese says:

    You could substitute carob chips instead of chocolate. I recommend reducing the amount by about a third as carob has a stronger taste (IMHO)

  159. Bridget says:

    I just made a mini batch (1 tbl of pb, 2 t agave, 1/2 tbl cocoa, and , < 1 tsp milk.) and it was delicious! It wasn't as peanut buttery as I'd thought it would be, which is good. Perhaps because I went with the higher ratio of agave? In the future, I might use less agave or maple syrup, but today my sweet tooth was barking at me. Anyhow, I used the bit of frosting I'd made to dunk little chocolate cookies in (Trader Joe's chocolate cats).
    VOILA! Homemade dunkaroos. It was totally a throw back food! Oh, how happy you have made me. <3

  160. Elva Barfield says:

    How do I print the recipe for your healthy chocolate frosting?

  161. Sophie says:

    Excuse me, but being a 13 year old girl and always wanting to bake (or basically, just eat), please excuse me when I say HOLY CRAP

    mineminemine

  162. Anupama says:

    I love everything about your blog!! It is just so yummilicious!!!

  163. Hannah says:

    My home base is in the Door County countryside, and when I go on my morning walk, all the daisies make me smile. Also, it makes me smile when people who drive by smile and wave at me. Happy people make me smile.

    This recipe, which I sort of ate for breakfast, made me smile. It’s awesome!

  164. jb says:

    This made with the chocolate pb2 is ridiculous.

  165. emily says:

    this is by far the best frosting i have ever tried, way better than store bought! going to put it on top of the cake i am making for my cousin’s birthday :)

  166. Nancy says:

    Help, what sugar free alternative can you use in the frosting recipe. (substituting for the maple syrup)

  167. Shira says:

    Wow. Katie, my husband is on this crazy diet to lower his cholesterol, and he went without dessert for almost half a year…until I stumbled onto your website. Thank you so much for these recipes. I have to admit, my tastes are way more picky; so while he is in heaven and cant stop singing your praise, I would still go for the less healthy options. Except for this frosting. I’m going to be making it over and over again. I used almond butter and agave, but it was more liquidy than your picture shows. I would add the milk a little at a time until you achieve the desired results.

  168. glendee1 says:

    Just finished…delicious! Used almond butter and 6 tsp of agave. It came out perfect and was fantastic on your chocolate cake with crazy ingredient.

  169. Shannon says:

    When I clicked on the link for a sugar-free alternative, it goes to your Chocolate Banana Split Butter. Can you tell me what the substitution is?

  170. K. Weyh says:

    I made this but it was super liquid… perfect for drizzling over an ice cream sunday but for icing, it was nothing like the pic… did i do something wrong???

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Yes, if made correctly it will be thick like frosting. Look at Katie’s Recipe FAQ page at the top of this blog for troubleshooting.

  171. Caroline says:

    I’m dying… like… right now!

    I so have to try the chocolatecake with this frosting!!
    Thanks for sharing!!

  172. Peggy L says:

    I am looking for microwave recipes that would be good for college dorms. This one is great! I would appreciate more of them. Thanks so much.

  173. Robin says:

    This frosting is divine, thank you for the recipe! : )

  174. Grace says:

    Hello I love your recipes I am hindu so I am vegan I love that you use coconut oil in Trinidad and Tobago coconut oil has made a resurgence and it is affordable we also use brown sugar the best thing is no eggs thank you again.

  175. DaddyD says:

    You are my new favorite person on the internet. My daughter Katie told me to tell you. Now, if you will excuse me, I have to go make a mug cake with this lovely frosting.

  176. So delicious! I just made the cake and icing! Such a nice study break.

  177. Nikki says:

    Well, you’re not going to believe this… my bf liked it but he says it reminded him too much of the brownie in the Hungry Man dinner.
    (he’s impossible to please)
    I’m in love, and actually have a satisfied chocolate craving (I’m pregnant – so that’s saying something)
    I suppose I have a weak microwave and I should have left it a little longer.
    He says it tasted like it was microwaved… *sigh* will post again after another attempt.

  178. Barbara Pinheiro says:

    Sounds amazing. I am preparing meals right now for a serious diabetic person. He loves sweet things, but can’t have any. I will use this recipe for him and It will definitely make him smile today!! Thank you

  179. Eloise Mark says:

    THIS IS THE BEST FROSTING EVER!!!!! I PUT IT ON THE CHOCOHOLIC CAKE FOR MY FRIENDS BIRTHDAY AND IT WAS THE BEST THING IVE EVER TASTED!!!!! WOOHOO

  180. Mama654 says:

    Tasted great! The entire family approved! We left the chocolate chips out since we frosted a homemade chocolate chip cookie cake. Thank you for the recipe! It will definitely be a keeper!

  181. Jenna says:

    I just made this. Ohmigod its so good! Its really difficult not to run back to the kitchen and eat the whole thing!

  182. Fran says:

    Ok, this made me smile: “Best to store uneaten frosting covered in the fridge.” I am a chocaholic and let me tell you – there is NO such thing as UNEATEN frosting in my house! Great recipe, thank you! 😀

  183. Bethy says:

    The fact that you think we’d have any more of that yummy stuff left over made me smile

  184. Faith Olson says:

    I was so excited to see you have a recipe for healthy fudge frosting but I can’t find it on your sight. You have so many wonderful recipes. But where is the H. Fudge Frosting recipe?
    Thank You, Faith

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Well, there is a healthy chocolate frosting recipe right here on this page. But here is a different recipe:
      http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2011/01/22/banana-chocolate-coconut-butter/

  185. Cara Guerra says:

    I just made this to go on top of paleo chocolate cupcakes…it was SO GOOD. I used sugar-free almond butter instead of peanut butter, which gave it a low, intense flavor reminiscent of nutella. I also cut way back on the maple syrup and left out the chocolate chips. There was leftover frosting after I was done with the cupcakes, and I happily cleaned it up! I would make cupcakes just for an excuse to make this; it’s the main event. Great recipe!

  186. Pam says:

    You’re a life-saver with all your delicious chocolate recipes. Thank you! I love your fudge – have a batch of chocolate raspberry in the freezer right now. I plan to frost it with a combination of unsweetened carob chips and peanut butter (approximately equal amounts), melted in the microwave. This frosting is so good on the banana chocolate fudge that I thought I’d try it on this one, although I do keep it in the freezer so it stays hard – a nice contrast to the fudge. Can’t wait for this little treat.

  187. Scarlette says:

    I just made this and oh my gosh is it amazing! I don’t have a Magic Bullet or Food processor so I just mixed everything together in a cup! I used extra cocoa so it’s sweeter. Thanks so much for the recipe Katie! :)

  188. Jessica says:

    Do you have to use pure maple syrup iron can I just use the regular kind from grocery store?

  189. Gayle Streett says:

    Thanks Kate! My husband is completely lactose free and now he can have homemade Reese’s pieces with the icing using your recipe (lactose-free milk, of course).

  190. Gayle Streett says:

    Sorry, I meant to say my husband is completely lactose intolerant.

  191. This and your 1 minute Chocolate Mug Cake look delish! This RD approves. Thanks!

  192. Sharon says:

    This is REALLY rich, and not very sweet. It’s good, but the flavor kind of overpowers the flavor of the One Minute Chocolate Cake, which I put it on. I used 6 tsp of syrup, I think if I make it again I’ll go the full 8, but I’m not sure what I’d put it on that it wouldn’t overpower.

  193. Tracey says:

    Omg. I love you, but I want to marry this frosting. I know, I am cheap with my love. Seriously, this is awesome. My boatmeal is baking as we speak, but the frosting might not make it on top. Mmmm.

  194. Leah says:

    I was going to make your protein bar to eat with my breakfast pizza, but then I adding milk to make it like this recipe, using only a little stevia. (1/4 cup almond butter + 1scoop vegan protein powder + 1/4 cup almond milk + 1tsp vanilla extract + pinch of stevia). Mixed together and made for frosting, but it didn’t make it to the pizza! Really good though, than you for the great recipes!!!

  195. Jan says:

    Please try to make a Hostess chocolate cupcake without milk! Also–
    My real need is to figure out a way to make a fluffy white delicious topping
    i can use to make a chocolate bell. A chocolate bell is a moist semisweet chocolate
    cupcake with fluffy white yummy frosting put on top in a peak like a mountain–then
    completey covered in ganache–so when you put your fork in– you get moist chocolate cake, white fluff, and chocolate ganache—yummm—it is by far my favorite dessert. You can sometimes find it in bakeries in New York.

  196. Sanne says:

    Hey there:)
    Thank you so much for all these awesome recipes. As someone, who’s whole family had been diagnosed with gluten intolerance, I am now officially your biggest fan. We are going to a birthday party tomorrow and bringing one of your cakes, can’t wait to try it out!
    Many loving greetings from Denmark :)
    <3 Sanne

  197. Alessandra says:

    This is the best frosting i ever had!!! Thanks

  198. Roxy says:

    Can we replace Peanut Butter to Nutella?

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Sure, you can definitely experiment.

  199. Jess says:

    Do you think that maybe honey or truvia or something else would work in place of maple syrup

  200. Jess says:

    I used truvia instead of maple syrup and it was delish!

  201. Lauren Ag says:

    What about maple butter? Like butter made from maple syrup that I got from Canada?

  202. Meghan says:

    Yesterday I made this and I accidentally added 6 TABLESPOONS instead of teaspoons (Whoops) and that accident was the BEST thing ever!It tastes SPOT ON like a reeses peanut butter cup!You must try this!So amazing.About to top my single serving peanut butter cake with it;)).

  203. Jennifer says:

    This saved me from baking an entire cake for myself. Thanks for the recipe, this was amazing!

  204. Ang says:

    So, So good. Shame on me, after eating one all by myself, I was so tempted to make another one. I had to exercise a lot of restraint. Thanks for another wonderful recipe. I had this one pinned for over a year, but just made it last night. It was just what I needed.

  205. Marsha says:

    I like this because you can make only one and gluten free dairy free or regular.

  206. Kelly says:

    You are a wizard. Amazing! Just made this for a craving. It’s the most sumptuous, velvety frosting! I made the one-minute cake too. Every time I start one of your recipes I think it can’t get any better than the last, then you wow me all over again. Can’t wait for the cookbook!!

  207. Eliana says:

    I made this for the one minute cake but I ended up eating some of it out of the tub… haha. Can’t wait to try it on the cake!

  208. barbara says:

    THIS page made me smile – and Asa’s suggestion: ” simply mix some cocoa powder into my almond butter and eat it with a spoon.” I made that just now with unsweetened cocoa powder, almond butter and xylitol. Actually works!

    1. Coco says:

      I’m not Vegan, but stumbling upon this blog/ recipe (completely by accident, of course) makes me extremely excited to try it out tomorrow. I’m sure it will be as delicious as it looks. Thank you, Katie, for taking the time to simplify our lives a little by finding new, quick and easy recipes to make our day just that much sweeter. -Courtney, 15

  209. Amanda says:

    I made the Reese chocolate frosting for the single mug chocolate cake. I did exactly what instructions suggested but it was kinda bitter so I added more milk and a tbsp on sugar. It tasted OKAY, but it wasn’t really that good.

  210. What chocolate frosting and that too healthy?!! Count me in!!

  211. Sue says:

    Thank you Katie for your recipes. These are the only very
    Healthy recipes that work!!!!
    I’m a pastry chef, I’m always cooking the usual cakes at work but
    At home for my young kids I like making healthy food, with your
    Blog you have done all the hard work for me!!
    Everything I make from your recipes are gone in minuets!!!!!!
    All the best

  212. melissa says:

    I’m allergic to tree nuts. Any idea if sun butter works? It’s made with sunflower seeds. It’s texture is similar but not the exact same as peanut butter.

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Works well!

  213. Jeanette says:

    Weak moment. In need of chocolate. Found your recipe. Satisfied my craving. Thank you!

  214. Donna says:

    Didn’t care for the p-nut butter flavor on my chocolate cake so I used what I had left as a spread on toast and ate it with a banana. SOOOOO GOOD!!!!! Might try different nut butters for the frosting mix next time.

  215. hale-o says:

    i’m not big on healt food, like i won’t go for it over something that tastes better. what i love about this recipe is the incredible texture. it’s super fast and thick and glossy. not very sweet but it tastes fine.

  216. Sharon says:

    Katie, this is delicious!! Thank you for sharing :)

  217. Alyssa says:

    I want to make this for my friend’s birthday on top of strawberry cupcakes. Do you think that would go together? Does it taste too peanut buttery to go with strawberry?
    Thanks so much Katie!

  218. Samantha says:

    I have to say I didn’t think this would turn out so good but this is actually DELICIOUS. I’ll probably end up replacing my usual peanut butter chocolate frosting for this stuff. It’s addicting!

  219. Michaela says:

    Hi Katie,
    I tried today the one minute cake. Cake itself was fine, what I have to especially recognize was the healthy fudge frosting. One amazing idea – it tastes so different and so good! I am going to archive this recipe in my secret book of recipes ;-). Thanks for sharing and keep on developing this kind of sweet stuff.
    Michaela

  220. amelie says:

    best frosting ever!! thanks a lot for sharing!

  221. Melissa says:

    do you have a sugar free substitute for the maple syrup/honey/agave in your recipes? I’m ideally looking for something that uses stevia extract powder. I’ve read that 1/4 cup of maple syrup could equal a pinch of pure extract mixed with 2 tbsp water. Do you have a method that works? I love all your recipes, but syrup/agave/honey is still full of calories and sugar, even if it is natural.
