Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Raise your hand if you like cream cheese frosting!

(Please tell me I’m not the only one with both hands raised)

This is the chocolate, luscious, delicious, elegant, perfect version of cream cheese frosting. It is great on yellow cake, chocolate cake and red velvet cake (that red cake that is just a vehicle for cream cheese frosting). Oh and cupcakes. And graham crackers. And your finger.

I most recently used it on the Broken Bones Graveyard Cake for Halloween!
