This chocolate cream cheese frosting is a chocolate lovers dream. This chocolate frosting is silky smooth, surprisingly easy to make, and pipes onto cupcakes or cakes beautifully. Luscious is the best way to describe this frosting. As I read through the recipe I was a little skeptical about the fact that it called for no butter and indeed as I mixed it up I couldn't help but add a couple of tablespoons which I found made this a lot creamier. After freezing, thaw in the refrigerator then beat the frosting for a few seconds so it's creamy again.
