Peppermint cream cheese frosting

mmmm what a perfect topping for chocolate cupcakes at the holidays. This had just a slight peppermint taste, just enough to go perfectly with chocolate. I used my Hershey’s perfectly chocolate cupcake recipe I have previous used and topped them with this fantastic frosting!

ENJOY!

Ingredients:
1  (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1  cup  butter or margarine, softened
1  (2-pound) package powdered sugar
2  teaspoons  peppermint extract

Directions:
Beat cream cheese and butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating at low speed until smooth. Add extract, beating until blended.
