    History Teacher's Note:

    This frosting is sooo good. It almost has a whipped consistency, and it tastes absolutely delicious. I use it when I want a rich & smooth chocolate frosting. It is my "go-to" frosting, and my family is always asking me to use it. I cannot even remember where I found it because I have been using it for so long. I usually end up doubling the recipe, which is the perfect amount for a two-layer cake. The most important step is letting your cream cheese and butter soften. Enjoy!

      Wow, this is sooo good just like History Teacher said! I used it on a chocolate cake that I added chocolate chips too and wow. My Hubby and Neighbour asked for seconds, I am sure the cake will be gone by tomorrow night for they work from home! If you are looking for a light fluffy frosting and want chocolaty this is it! I will be making this again! Used 1/2 c. of the cocoa like others posted and YUMMMMMY!

      I used this recipe as a base for a my version. I used 3 oz whipped cream cheese walmart brand. I set it out for an hour to keep it at room temperature. Then I used smart butter brand 1/4 cup. (its less fatty butter than others) heat it microwave for 30secs leave out for 30 minutes to cool.Then 1/2 cup Hersey's Cocoa 100% special Dark. 3 teaspoon of milk and 1/2 teasp vanilla extract and 2 c powered sugar I omited the salt. Its a fantastic topping with my brownie (Ghiraradelli double choc mix) I'm rather my m own treats then buy from store or restaurants at least you know whats in it Tina Rocbodyfitness.webs.com
