  • Milk or cream- 1 ½ tablespoons.


  • Add the softened butter to a mixing bowl and creme it if not yet cremy.
  • In a separate bowl, blend together the unsweetened cocoa and sugar free powdered sugar.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients from the second bowl to the first bowl and blend. Then stir in the vanilla extract.
