1/4 Cup of Heavy cream (per color)
3 Oz Of Butter (not melted)
2 Oz O Unsweetened Shaved Bulk Chocolate
and then a third cup of agave

Then after heating the cream and agave together, stirring often until it comes to a boil.
shut off the heat source and add your shaved chocolate to the mix
stirring until the chocolate is completely melted.
This is where the fun begins, pour your chocolate cream mix into a bowl, then add in 1 tbsp of the unmelted butter at a time and work it into the mix until the icing becomes creamy
Repeat process for each color of frosting

Marshmallows make great eyes when dotted with mini chocolate chips (can use unsweetened)

Try this great tip:

By adding a little honey to the mix you can make frosting that stays in the shape you cast it, in other words spiders legs and squid's tentacles stay where you put them and don't fall apart like most store bought icing's.
Honey is a great natural sweetener for pies, cakes, teas and almost everything you use sugar for.

Substituting sugar and eggs is a great way to share share with other family members and seniors who may not be able to handle sugar or have allergies to those types of foods.

(Remember add the wet mix to the dry mix, the vinegar and baking soda are used in place of eggs for those with egg allergies, you can replace them with 2 egg whites from large eggs if you wish).
