My husbands birth day was a couple weeks ago and I made a homemade chocolate cake and cupcakes. I wanted a frosting that was light fluffy and mildly sweet but I couldn’t find the perfect recipe online. It hadn’t been invented yet!
So here is what I came up with. Looks amazing huh?
1 stick of butter
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk or milk substitute
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 oz organic cream cheese or substitute softened
1 tub of cool whip
Melt butter and stir in cocoa powder. Allow to cool for 2 minutes. Put the cocoa mixture into a large bowl and add the vanilla. Using an electric mixer slowly combine the powdered sugar and milk alternating. Start and ending with powdered sugar. Finish off by folding in the cool whip and combine with the mixer until the frosting is a uniform color. Cool for about 30 minutes then ice your cupcakes, cake or just eat it right out of the bowl.
