Yum yum yum!
Store bought frosting often has corn syrup or soybean oil in it. Those are both ingredients we avoid at our house due to food allergies. Below is a delicious homemade chocolate frosting that is in no way low cal but it's frosting...we're not eating it because it's good for you!
8 ozs cream cheese, room temperature (I've used the "1/3 less fat" kind and it still turn out great)
1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3-4 cups powdered sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
- Beat cream cheese and butter together until smooth and creamy.
- Slowly mix in powdered sugar. Try one cup at a time.
- Add cocoa powder and mix until well combined.
