  1. Place half of the powdered sugar into a large mixing bowl. Add the cocoa powder, vegan buttery spread, and a little bit of the non-dairy milk.

  2. Mix on low speed until it starts to combine. Alternate adding the remaining powdered sugar and more non-dairy milk until you achieve a smooth, spreadable consistency.

  3. Spread or pipe onto cupcakes. I used these piping bags and Wilton tip #21 to frost the cupcakes that are pictured.

Recipe Notes

If you are not dairy free, you can use regular butter and regular milk, the amounts should be the same.

Store leftovers in the refrigerator, they should stay fresh for 5 days.
