Whipped Cocoa Cream Frosting

Between studying for a biology exam and writing my senior thesis I concocted this magnificent light chocolate frosting, that is oh so easy to make. Hardest part... remembering to pull the cream cheese out of the fridge and letting it sit to room temperature. Secret...pull it out before you make the cupcakes and place it on top of your oven (if you can). 

  • 1 8oz package of cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup of heavy whip cream
  • 3/4 cup powder sugar
  • 4 Tb Cocoa Powder
  • 1Tb vanilla 

In a bowl combine the cream cheese, cocoa powder, vanilla and powder sugar. In another bowl whip the heavy cream until firm peaks begin to form, then using a spatula fold it into the cream cheese mixture. 

Now dust with a little cocoa powder or chocolate shavings and Ta Da! cheap and tasty college frosting!
