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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream the cream cheese and butter together.
  2. Sift the powdered sugar and cocoa into a separate bowl.
  3. Add sifted ingredients a little at a time to creamed mixture, beating until well incorporated.
  4. Mix in vanilla.
  5. Mix in a cup of chopped pecans, if desired.

Excellent frosting. Softer, and not as sickeningly sweet as many frostings.
