It’s good to have an easy keto frosting recipe in your recipe box. This frosting is a twist on the traditional cream cheese frosting. Creamy sugar free white chocolate is added for an extra rich, buttery, chocolaty flavor; all the while, keeping this a beautiful white frosting to decorate low carb cakes, cupcakes and cookies with.

This frosting is delicious on top of keto red velvet cake and red velvet waffles. It would also stand well with any sugar free chocolate dessert that needs a little dollup of white chocolate cream cheese frosting.

Keto White Chocolate

Before commerically available sugar-free white chocolate, you would have to make your own white chocolate from scratch using cocoa butter and alternative sweetener. I tried it once and it wasn’t the same.

Fortunately , ChocZero came out with white chocolate baking chips that are sugar free and sugar alcohol free. They are sweetened with monkfruit. They melt easily and taste like traditional white chocolate - proably because they contain more cocoa butter than your average chip.

How to Melt Chocolate

Two methods for melting chocolate chips are to use the microwave or a double boiler. My preferred method is to microwave it because it is easier, takes about 60 seconds, and doesn’t involve multiple pans.

To melt chocolate in the microwave, place the chips in a microwave safe, glass bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seonds. Stir. Then microwave again for an additional 15-30 seconds. Remove and stir again until melted. The chocolate comes out perfectly melted and shiny.

To melt chocolate using a double boiler. Fill a saucepan with water and place on the stove on low heat. Place another glass bowl containing the chocolate on top of the lip of the pan. It needs to sit on the edges but not touch the water. The steam from the water below will help to melt the chocolate. Stir to encourage melting.

Should the Cream Cheese and Butter be Softened to Room Temperature?

In this recipe, the butter needs to be softened to room temperature and the cream cheese and be cold or semi cold. You can cut the cream cheese into cubes to make it easier to mix together using the hand mixer or stand mixer.

If the cream cheese is also softened to room temperature, the frosting could become to soft and difficult to pipe into the shape you are looking for.

Piping Bags for Keto Frosting

You can just spoon it on or use a spatula. If you want beautiful swirls or puffs, then place the frosting in a piping bag with a tip. The decorating tips come in different sizes.
