Easy Whipped Cream Cheese Icing



I made this icing for a half-birthday party, and I'd have to say it's my favorite icing I've made so far. It's even better refrigerated and eaten cold with a warm brownie (don't try to spread it once it's refrigerated- won't happen.)

I used it on a modified version of Hershey's Black Magic cupcakes. My personal chocolate cake recipe is in the works, but I'm not going to post it until I'm happy. :)

Ingredients
  • 1 lb. cream cheese (room temp)
  • 2 sticks butter (room temp)
  • 4 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
1. Mix the cream cheese and butter on low speed until combined. Then whip the cream cheese and butter mixture on high until until light.
2. With mixer on low, slowly add in the confectioner's sugar until combined. Scrape down bowl when necessary.
3. Whip the mixture on high. Slowly stream in the heavy cream until the icing is very light and fluffy.
