The best chocolate cream cheese frosting recipes an amazingly easy recipe with common ingredients. It makes a very smooth delicious chocolate frosting that melts in the mouth.
1/4 C salted butter
1 8oz Cream cheese or Neufchatel cream cheese

1/4-1/3 C cocoa baking powder (start with 1/4 C and add as desired)
Makes enough for 1 large cake or 24 cupcakes
1. First, soften the butter and unwrapped-cream cheese in the microwave. For a firmer consistency don’t melt either one.
2. Next, add all of the ingredients and only 1 C powdered sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix on low speed adding the rest of the powdered sugar slowly until it is all added.
3. Mix on high for 1-2 minutes until the frosting is smooth.
4. Taste Test.
5. Depending on your preferences you may want to add more cocoa powder (which is why I recommend starting with 1/4 C and adding more to taste).
Finally, enjoy the best chocolate cream cheese frosting you’ll probably ever try!
