Paleo Chocolate Frosting

This Paleo Chocolate Frosting is super easy to make. It’s so rich and delicious that you might find yourself eating it by the spoonful! Made with just 3 ingredients –dark chocolate, coconut oil, and vanilla, it is a rich and creamy topping that will take your paleo desserts to the next level!

I designed this chocolate frosting recipe for my Paleo Chocolate Cupcakes, which my children, and their friends, have been gobbling up. I know I’ve got a good dessert on my hands when my children’s gluten eating pals scarf down my gluten-free, paleo desserts, and then ask for more. These healthy paleo cupcakes smothered in Paleo Chocolate Frosting didn’t last long at all!

I began creating this dairy-free frosting recipe a few weeks ago. While I was in the middle of working on it, I received a comment from a reader named Reggie, that contained a similar recipe to mine. At that point, I knew my recipe was going in the right direction.

If you’re allergic to coconut, try my Chocolate Buttercream Frosting recipe, made with real butter, it’s incredible! If you have a birthday coming up, make sure to use either of my incredible chocolate frosting recipes to top my Paleo Birthday Cake recipe!
