Chocolate Frosting, Icing, and Glaze
One of these two chocolate frosting, icing and glaze recipes can be used as a thick frosting (or icing) or can be warmed up and thinned into a glaze. The other recipe is a thin powdered (confectioners’) sugar chocolate glaze. Both are very sweet and yummy!

For the frosting, icing, or thick glaze:
To make the thin glaze:
  1. Sift the powdered sugar and cocoa into a small mixing bowl.
  2. Add the melted vegan butter, vanilla, and plant based milk to the bowl.
  3. Mix well. Glaze will be thin enough for pouring and will soak into cakes or cupcakes.
  4. Store any unused portion covered in the refrigerator.
To make the frosting, icing or thick glaze:
  1. Add the vegan chocolate chips and vegan butter to a small mixing bowl. Microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring between times, until chips are almost melted. Set aside until the chips melt. Stir to make smooth.
  2. Sift the powdered sugar into the bowl with the melted ingredients, occasionally adding 1 tablespoon of plant based milk to help with stirring. Alternate sugar and milk until it has all been added.
  3. Stir to blend until smooth. To thin this frosting, microwave for 15 seconds at a time, until the icing reaches a thinner consistency. Pour or spread over cakes or cupcakes.
  4. To use the thicker version of the frosting, spread with a knife or cake icing spatula onto the cakes or cupcakes.
  5. Recipe can be doubled or tripled.
  6. Store any unused portion covered in the refrigerator.
