1/2 cup softened butter
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 tsp vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar
Mix butter, cream cheese, and vanilla. Add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, slowly. For chocolate frosting, add 1/2 cup cocoa with last cup of powdered sugar and mix well. I often make the whole batch of frosting, and take half out and only add 1/4 cup cocoa so I have plain cream cheese frosting for another recipe.
This is a great recipe and always turns out perfect. It makes quite a bit and is perfect for cookie decorating, cakes, cupcakes, or just for the middle of graham crackers!
