  1. Pour heavy cream or coconut cream into a small-medium sized saucepan.
  2. Sprinkle gelatin over the surface and allow it to dissolve for 1 minute.
  3. Whisk thoroughly before adding any additional ingredients. This will help the gelatin to dissolve.
  4. Add cocoa powder and sweetener and whisk again until fully mixed.
  5. Place the pan over medium heat and whisk continually for 8 to 10 minutes, until chocolate is steamy but not simmering. Cocoa should be fragrant.
  6. Turn off heat and allow frosting to cool for 10 minutes.
