This is an amazing easy recipe with common ingredients. It makes a very smooth delicious chocolate frosting that melts in the mouth.

Ingredients:

1/4 C salted butter
1 8oz Cream cheese or Neufchatel cream cheese
1 tsp Vanilla extract (I use Mexican extract because it is better)
4 C confectioners/Powdered sugar
1/4-1/3 C coco baking powder (start with 1/4 C and add as desired)

Makes enough for 1 large cake or 24 cupcakes

First, soften the butter and unwrapped-cream cheese in the microwave. For a firmer consistency don't melt either one.

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.

Taste Test.

Depending on your preferences you may want to add more cocco powder (which is why I recommend starting with 1/4 C and adding more to taste).
