Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting


Today I made a cake for the husband's sister. This is the frosting I whipped together to top it. It was a total wing it sort of thing but I just loved the taste of it. Chocolate but not too much chocolate. Cream cheese but still on the sweet side.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

1/2 Cup Room Temperature Butter
12 Ounces Cream Cheese
1/2 T Vanilla Extract
2 2/3 Cup Sifted Powdered Sugar
1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder

Cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth and evenly combined.

Add the vanilla and mix until incorporated.

Add the sifted sugar and cocoa powder and mix until completely incorporated.

That is all there is to it folks! Simple and delicious. You can add more chocolate if you want it stronger! Or leave out the chocolate if you just want some good cream cheese frosting.

This is about 3 Cups of frosting. I used it for the middle of the two layers of cake, to frost, and still had some left over for the husband to eat. Makes plenty and will save well if you don't use it all.
