This chocolate frosting is so easy to put together and has a secret ingredient that really takes it to another level – cream cheese!
Cream cheese adds a rich, creamy texture to the buttercream frosting, and you honestly can’t even tell it’s in there, so it doesn’t take away from the chocolate flavor at all!
