  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons whipping cream as needed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder


  1. In a large bowl beat the butter with an electric mixer until fluffy (about 2-3 minutes).
  2. Beat in the cream cheese until evenly combined. Then add in the vanilla extract & salt.
  3. In a separate bowl sift together the cocoa powder & powdered sugar. Whisk them gently.
  4. With the mixer on low speed, carefully beat the cocoa & powdered sugar into the butter mixture.
  5. Once it's almost combined turn the mixer up to medium speed & continue beating until combined.
  6. If the frosting seems too thick or sweet, optionally add in 1-2 tablespoons of whipping cream. If it isn't sweet enough mix in a little more powdered sugar, about 1/4 cup at a time.
  7. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag to decorate cupcakes (I used a 1M tip), or frost with a flat knife.
