Day 37: Chocolate Frosting

Yield: 2 cups (double for frosting a cake)
Time (Start to Finish): 10 min

2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp cream cheese
½ cup cocoa powder
2 ½ cups powder sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
3-4 Tbsp half and half

1. Make sure butter and cream cheese are room temp
2. Sift powdered sugar and cocoa into a bowl
3. Mix butter, cream cheese, sugar, cocoa, half and half and vanilla until smooth and creamy. You can add more half and half, but add just a little at a time. If it gets too runny, add more powdered sugar.
4. Frosts 1 layer of cake, so double if making a full cake

Rating: 4.5 strawberries
Notes: Happy Birthday Jeff and Kendra!!! It is both of their birthdays, and I made them a lemon cake with chocolate frosting, which is my brother’s birthday cake since he was a kid. I drove it down to LA for them and they loved it! The frosting was just perfect for the cake, a tad grainy I think from not stirring enough, but all in all perfect, and I know made my brother happy! And, it travels super well! Just keep out of the sun!
