This Keto Chocolate Frosting is a luscious and dreamy frosting that matches perfectly with any chocolate cake or cupcake. This silky cream cheese frosting uses sour cream and heavy whipping cream to make the best fluffy Keto chocolate frosting. This recipe makes enough frosting to frost 2 layers of cake or 24 cupcakes.
In a medium mixing bowl, using a hand mixer at low speed, blend the cream cheese by itself until softened. Then add the 1/4 cup sweetener and cocoa power and blend until combined. Next, increase the speed to high and blend until the mixture is smooth.
Next, add the sour cream and vanilla extract and blend until smooth
In a separate small mixing bowl, using a hand blender with clean beaters, whip together the heavy whipping cream and 1 tsp sweetener until stiff peaks form.
Next, carefully fold 1/3 of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture to lighten. Then fold in the remaining 2/3rds of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture, ensuring to not break the bubbles. Fold just until fully incorporated and smooth.
This recipe makes about four cups of frosting which is the appropriate amount of frosting for a 2-layer nine inch cake. If you are frosting a single-layer cake or cupcakes, you may want to halve the recipe.
