But as much as I love cream cheese icing, I do need chocolate in my life sometimes. So here's an adaption for chocolate icing. Soooooo good. Compliments of Allrecipes.
8 oz cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons milk
4 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon powder
In a bowl, beat together the cream cheese, 3 tablespoons milk, confectioners sugar, butter, vanilla, cocoa, and cinnamon to a spreadable consistency. Beat in additional milk if necessary. For a darker frosting add more cocoa or up to 4 ounces melted chocolate. Spread onto cooled cake.
