sticks of butter (room temperature)
1/4 to 3/4* cup of Swerve Confectioners Sugar

2 tsp of Vanilla Extract 

1/2 cup of Cocoa Powder

2 teaspoons of Vanilla extract.



Cream the butter (should be at room temperature), until well mixed and creamed at a medium-high speed. Sift all the dry ingredients and mix them.

Add all the dry ingredients and vanilla extract and mix in a low setting until mixed. If you don't like a lot of sugar, I suggest starting with 1/4 cup and adding sugar until you find your sweet spot.

If you like sugar you can add a full 1/2 cup. Once it's mixed well you can cover your cake. 

 If the buttercream is too stiff you can add a tablespoon of heavy cream to thin it. You can add more if you feel is still too stiff. 
A double batch will cover a 6-inch cake and will have enough leftover for piping borders.


*Use Swerve Confectioners Sugar. Granulated sugar substitutes will make the buttercream grainy. Liquid sugar substitutes won't work with this recipe.
