This silky frosting relies on all of the natural sweetness in dates and cream - so there's no added refined sugar! The recipe makes enough to frost 12 cupcakes or one small cake.

Ingredients

Directions

Soak the date pieces in very hot water until very soft, about 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a food processor. Put the chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 second increments, stirring after each, until melted and smooth. Add to the dates along with the heavy cream and cocoa powder. Process until light and smooth.
