Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream  

Hersheys Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Filling & Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream🤪 🤩 🤪

Chocolate cream cheese buttercream is a rich and creamy frosting that combines the tangy flavor of cream cheese with the decadent taste of chocolate. This frosting is perfect for topping cakes, cupcakes, and other baked treats, adding a deliciously indulgent finish.

To make chocolate cream cheese buttercream, start by beating softened butter and cream cheese together until smooth and creamy. Add powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and a pinch of salt, and continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy.

For a richer chocolate flavor, you can also add melted chocolate or cocoa powder to the frosting. If the frosting is too thick, you can thin it out with a little milk or cream.

Spread the chocolate cream cheese buttercream over your cooled cake or cupcakes, using a spatula or piping bag to create swirls or other decorative designs. You can also use the frosting as a filling for layer cakes or as a dip for cookies or fruit.

Chocolate cream cheese buttercream is sure to be a hit with chocolate lovers. Its creamy texture and rich flavor make it a delicious topping for any dessert.
