CHOCLAT SIN #17
Here's a recipe for frosting. It's best on everything! Too all encompassing? Well, I don't think so...you have your chocolate and you have your cream cheese. That covers a lot of craving. Make enough to spread on your favorite cake, cookies, brownies, cupcakes..you can't go wrong..it's your choice, after all. Also, remember that you can use low fat cream cheese..no guilt necessary. Lick the mixing bowl clean..waste not, want not!
I'm also going to recommend a wine to go with this..it is dessert, after all! Pairing frosting with wine is a whole new category. A good hobby if you're looking for one. A light bodied, fresh and fruity red will enhance the flavor of this more than easy recipe!
CHOCOLATE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 lb. butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
6 tbls. unsweetened cocoa
In a bowl, with mixer on low speed, beat cream cheese and butter until well blended.
In another bowl, sift together powdered sugar and cocoa. Beat into cream cheese mixture until frosting is smooth. Spread at room temperature.
