This smooth, creamy chocolate cream cheese frosting is the perfect finishing touch for any vanilla, peanut butter, or chocolate cake. It's wonderful on cupcakes as well.
Spread it on a layer cake or pipe it onto cupcakes or individual cake squares for a designer look. For the best flavor use full-fat cream cheese.
To melt the chocolate, put it into a stainless steel bowl or the top of a double boiler and place it over simmering water (keep the pan or bowl above the water). Heat, stirring, until melted.
In a mixing bowl with an electric mixer, cream together the butter and cream cheese until fluffy.
Add the melted chocolate, salt, sifted confectioners' sugar, half-and-half, and vanilla.
Beat until smooth and spreadable, adding more half-and-half or confectioners' sugar, if necessary.
