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.
This dressing is good anytime, not just for holidays! Easy to make and keeps well in the fridge. You can use a jar of pear baby food if pears aren't in season. Inspired by Zurie's apple salad (recipe #246951).
This old recipe is one of my favorites. Originally from Esther Shank's Mennonite cookbook, I tweaked it just a bit. This recipe predates worries about raw eggs, so you might consider using an egg substitute instead.
