  • Summary

    Is butter "Paleo?" Click here and here for some great info on this topic. If you cannot consume butter, I recommend making a double batch of this chocolate buttercream frosting. As with all desserts, it's best to consume in moderation.?

    • 8 ounces dark chocolate (I used Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips because they are soy-free)?
    • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter or 7 tablespoons ghee
    • 2/3 cup maple syrup
