Incredible Italian Chocolate Frosting

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by puppitypup

The holy grail of chocolate frosting! The secret is the cream cheese. I actually don't like cream cheese, but you can't taste the cream cheese in the frosting. The cream cheese somehow adds just the right touch to the chocolate flavor.
