Chocolate Creamcheese Frosting

Sharing is caring!


I saw this frosting recipe for a cake, but thought I’d try it for the kids cupcakes. It was a nice change. You can’t go wrong adding cream cheese to anything! If you wanna try an easy and quick chocolate cupcake recipe from scratch, click Here.

LittleChefTip: Kids love decorating cupcakes. No decorating bag? No worries! Put frosting in a Ziploc bag and cut off the corner for a makeshift piping bag.  Cut the hole as small or big as you like.

*My favorite decorating tip is Wilton 1M
