Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting is perfect for cakes or cupcakes! It is chocolatey, smooth and super easy to make.
If you’re on the lookout for a silky smooth, no-fail chocolate frosting recipe, you have come to the right place. This Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting is so easy to make, you guys, and goes on just about any baked good such as Chocolate Cupcakes or Chocolate Cake or even Classic White Cupcakes. I smeared it allllll over a box-mix cake (sshhh, don’t tell) a few weeks ago and it made my head spin all the way into outer space.
Welp, it’s Monday and memories of this frosting have me dreaming of more baked goods. What should I make this week (cackling..)? Surely at some point I should start delivering a steady stream of healthy options. Hmm. I’ll sleep on that.
