Chocolate sweet potato frosting ingredients

This will give you the best, most sweet flavor. This will also ensure that the frosting does not become watery.

You can use chocolate bars instead of chips if you don’t already have them on hand or don’t wish to go to the store.
Sweet potato frosting
Let your sweet potato cool down after baking, so it is not too hot.
The sweet potato flesh can be placed in a food processor. You can either discard the skin or eat it. Sweet potato skin contains fiber.
Melt the chocolate chips carefully in the microwave or with a double boiler. Chocolate chips can burn quickly, so remove them from the heat source before completely melting. Stir until smooth.
Add the melted chocolate to the food processor. Blend until smooth and thick.
It’s easy to decorate cakes with the frosting. You can pipe it through a piping tip or ziplock bag.
