This really is the sugar free chocolate icing on the cake! We came up with this chocolate frosting recipe before we'd even perfected the sugar free chocolate cake recipe. This icing recipe uses honey, no refined sugar so it's great for a healthy diet and for diabetics.
The base of this frosting is double cream or heavy cream, it can easily be piped onto cakes or spread on with a knife.
First add all your ingredients to a large bowl, no need to melt anything as it will combine very easily.
We've used a teaspoon of sugar free vanilla essence to add depth of flavour to the chocolate frosting.
Using honey in the sugar free chocolate icing is healthier for diabetics too, as most frosting recipes use powdered refined sugar.
The optional sugar free chocolate sauce is one I found in the UK that uses all natural ingredients, it's made from carob and apple. Here's a link if you'd like to buy it on eBay, it's made in the UK but they will ship worldwide.
Whisk until thick enough to hold it's shape, this sugar free icing can be piped onto your cake using a piping bag or spread thickly with a knife.
Strictly speaking, this chocolate frosting without refined powdered sugar is actually close to a sugar free chocolate ganache :)
Spread half of the icing to fill the centre, then top with the rest, or you could slice your cake up into more layers to make an even more impressive sugar free chocolate dessert. Here's the recipe for sugar free chocolate cake.
