Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

I made chocolate cupcakes with this Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting for Halloween last week.  I brought them for a coworker's retirement party and they turned out great.  My friend gave me all the Halloween decor for the cupcakes so it was perfect.  I would definitely be using this Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting recipe for future cupcakes because it is so easy.  I love a recipe with only a few ingredients.  Sorry I am also behind on posting recipes but I got obsessed with watching Breaking Bad and I have finally finished all 5 seasons!  The show is so addicting and I couldn't stop because it is that good.  So go watch Breaking Bad if you haven't already and try this frosting, enjoy! 

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
¼ cup unsalted butter or 4 tablespoons, room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
½ cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla


In a stand mixer, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy.

Slowly add in powdered sugar and cocoa powder.

Add in vanilla.

Makes enough for 24 cupcakes.
