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.

Can you just make up a batch and sit with the bowl and a big spoon? I guess not, eh?

Sorry I've not been round to visit, Lyn. I've been busy getting my poetry ready to publish (it's a long process). I'll be back regularly once I get the pdf to the printer's.

Have a great day,

Kat

Hi Kat..
Good to hear from you..I too was "gone" for a couple of weeks..not as productive as you..
I did the book thing, and it does take lots of concentration..I wish you luck..I think self publishing has really improved, can't wait to see your results..

Just because you've been away at a health farm, Lyn, doesn't mean you can get back to your old tricks! :0)
