  1. Start by whipping up your butter to make it fluffy. I use a whisk attachment on my mixer.
  2. Add the sugar free powdered sugar to the butter. Switch to a paddle attachment or mix by hand using a spoon. Cream this together.
  3. Stir in the chocolate and the vanilla extract.
  4. When the chocolate appears to be blended in, add a tablespoon of your dairy. Whip this up and if your frosting seems to be too thick continue to add additional dairy, up to a 1 tablespoon at a time, until you have reached your desired texture. However, to thicken up a thin frosting, simply add additional sugar a teaspoon at a time.
  5. This should frost an average sized cake depending the thickness of your frosting.
