Thick, glossy and oh so delicious. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to come up with this Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting recipe! It might change your life!
What is your favourite frosting?
I have never been a fan of buttercream. I know this my seem like a bit of a shock because I make it quite a lot. But buttercream isn’t for me!
What is better than cream cheese frosting?
The only thing better than cream cheese frosting is Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting! It is so deliciously creamy and indulgent. As soon as I made it I knew it was going to change my life! I know that sounds dramatic, but that’s just how delicious it is!
What to put this Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting on
Anything and everything! In all seriousness this frosting would work really well with vanilla or chocolate cake. The recipe below makes enough frosting to generously decorate 18 cupcakes.
By generously I mean how the cupcakes in the photographs are decorated. Some people like less frosting than this and that will obviously mean the frosting will go further.
This Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting would be delicious on my Small Chocolate Layer Cake. I would recommend using it as a filling, rather than to completely cover the whole cake.
You could use two thirds of the recipe below and frost Vanilla Cupcakes like I have done in the photographs. It would also work perfectly on my Small Batch Vanilla Cupcakes and Small Batch Chocolate Cupcakes if you use one third of the quantities below.
