Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

If you love cream cheese this is the recipe for you. Whip this up and have enough to ice a small layer cake. 

You never want to use too much sweetener when making your icing. It is very easy to go from not quite sweet enough to too sweet and ruin your icing. 

I like to use a sweetened whey powder to make icing. Protein powder is low carb and it bulks up the consistency of your icing without using so much sweetener.

Another tip is to whip the cream cheese and butter quite long. I will usually do close to 5 minutes before I add any sweetener. This makes for a nice light texture. 

Have your butter and cream cheese softened to room temperature first.j
