During sophomore year of college, my favorite roommate introduced me to the idea of eating Pillsbury chocolate frosting straight from the jar.

With a spoon.

Like ice cream.

(Guess why she was my favorite roommate…)

Obviously this was not the healthiest habit, although it embarrassingly fit right in with the rest of my all-carbs-all-sugar college diet.

I created the following recipe as a healthier alternative, and years later it’s still one of my favorite recipes, because you can use it in so many different ways.

Hint: It’s great on top of these Sweet Potato Brownies

My personal favorite way to make the recipe is with peanut butter, because it will taste like eating a Reeses peanut butter cup!

If you want a more neutral flavor, simply use almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower butter, or even coconut butter instead of peanut butter.

Notes

Feel free to try this recipe with almond butter, cashew butter, sunbutter, or even coconut butter! I haven’t tried a stevia version, nor have I tried the healthy frosting recipe with pb2 or better’n pb, but you can try those substitutions at your own risk.

If you’d prefer a non-chocolate cake or cupcake topping, be sure to try this homemade Coconut Whipped Cream.
