Peppermint cream cheese frostingPosted: December 13, 2009
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!
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 (2-pound) package powdered sugar
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
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.
