In a large mixing bowl, combine your coconut oil, sticky sweetener of choice and cocoa powder. Mix until a glossy liquid chocolate texture remains.
Add your unsweetened applesauce. Start with 1 cup and depending on what texture you are after, increase.
Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes, to thicken slightly. If you need to use it immediately, add a tablespoon or two or coconut flour/cornstarch.
* For a thinner, drippy frosting, add more applesauce (or maple syrup).** Alternatively, refrigerate longer to firm up. Healthy 4 Ingredient Applesauce Chocolate Frosting tastes best made and used on the same day. If you refrigerate it, you'll need to let it sit at room temperature to soften up. Alternatively, you can add some milk or maple syrup to loosen up.
