GAPS-Friendly Rich and Creamy Chocolate Frosting

1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup coconut oil
4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
1/3-1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut flour, sifted
pinch sea salt

Place butter, coconut oil, and chocolate in heat-proof bowl such as Pyrex.  Place bowl on pot of simmering water.  Bowl should be large enough to not fall completely into the pot.  Melt ingredients while stirring over medium heat.

When all ingredients are thoroughly melted and blended well, remove bowl from pot.  Stir in honey (adjust to taste), salt, and coconut flour.  

In the pot, replace the simmering water with cold water and a couple of handfuls of ice cubes.  Place the Pyrex bowl in the pot of ice water.  Just the bottom of the Pyrex bowl should be in the ice water. Keep mixing the frosting with hand-held electric mixer until the frosting is a spreadable consistency.
