Cooked Vegan Cocoa Icing

Flourless Cocoa Brownies with Cooked Vegan Cocoa Frostin

This recipe is from one of MCCN favorite blogs.  If you are looking for plethora of healthy, gluten free and vegan recipes then check out yummysmells.ca

This recipe is not only vegan but gluten free, glossy and perfect to dip everything from cupcakes to cookies as well as for pouring over brownies or cake. Setting up like a firm, yet slightly soft fudge, it also and has a delicate hint of coconut flavour thanks to the Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil I used as a base. The recipe doesn’t use any chocolate, but instead gets its colour, flavour and (never-blooming) shine from my favorite cocoa powdericing sugar and potato starch.  All in all, it’s definitely spoon-worthy and a definite keeper in my file!
