Sweet Dark Chocolate Sauce

Keto Mug Brownie Icing

Adding icing or ganache will make your brownie even better. It is very simple and will take a couple of minutes. Besides, anyone can successfully cope with the task. There are many glaze options for keto treats, but we will tell you about the two simplest options.

Chocolate Ganache Frosting

Ingredients

  • 20 gr cocoa powder
  • 50 gr butter
  • Sweetener to taste

Preparation

Step 1

Microwave the butter a little, just to soften (5-10 seconds). You do not need to melt it. Otherwise, you will get a completely different texture.

Step 2

Mix it with sweetener. The frosting is a creamy, chocolate-like liquid. Just spread it on the baked cake.

Important tip: We recommend you use erythritol. It is a natural sweetener that also has stabilizing characteristics, so the ganache turns out to be similar to the one on the donuts.
