Chocolate Pan Frosting

I was making the high carb version of this frosting for a mississipi mud cake I made for my husband this weekend and was just wondering if I could make it low-carb (basically without the sugar) because it is soooo good, kind of like liquid crack

So I just made the 3 minute chocolate cake and decided to try this so I could pour it on top.

I honestly couldn't tell the difference. It is sooo ridiculously good.

It will thicken if you let it set so you could actually frost a whole cake or cupckaes with it too.

Here's the basic recipe:

1 stick of butter
4 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa
1/3 cup of heavy whipping cream
4 cups of powdered erythritol, sifted

Melt the butter in a saucepan on the stove, whisk in the cocoa and cream and bring it to a slight boil. Remove from heat and whisk in the erythritol.

You might have to play with it a little to get it just to your taste. I added a couple of extra drops of ez-sweetz at the end and also added a little more cream and cocoa.

It should be smooth and shiny. If you see that it is coagulating, add a little more cream, a little more cocoa, etc until it gets just right consistency.

This really is yummy.

4 cups (1 box) of powdered sugar is what I used to ice one 2-layer cake, back in the old days....

That's pretty expensive frosting, but hey, when ya gotta have it - ya gotta have it!

Yeah, that would be enough for a whole cake.

I made half a batch to test it out.

But I wanted to put the whole thing up and then let people cut it how they wanted.

Also, you could probably make a single serving of it if you wanted, just take the ingredients and cut them down to make a small batch.

Its super easy to make and only takes about 10 minutes.

I think it would last in the fridge for a week or two and then you would just have to heat it if you wanted to frost a single thing or pour it on something. I like it warm best anyway.
