Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

This came from my aunt who loves cake. It is a little different from a buttercream frosing as it has cream cheese in it, but it is delicious.

I made this recipe on 12/08/09 to frost Recipe#303163. Reading through this recipe, I was a bit confused on the powdered sugar. Should it be measured first then sifted, or should it be sifted then measured ? So, I measured then sifted. I also wasn't sure if the cream cheese should be softened or not. So, I softened it at room temp. for about 30 minutes. Even before adding the liquid, it was so runny that I had to add more sugar to get thick enough to spread. My SO seemed to like it, but to me it was just o.k. Thanks for posting.
