Don't know where I found this recipe, but of course as always I have changed it out.

5 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1 Softened Cup Unsalted Butter OR 1  8 ounce package Cream Cheese FAT FREE, LOW FAT, or REGULAR
4 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar

Mix first 4 ingredients together, then slowly (so as not to have white powder flying everywhere) add in powdered sugar.

Mix well.  Refrigerate for an hour for a stiffer frosting or use right away for a softer frosting.

Cream Cheese Mints

I wanted to try to make cream cheese mints.  I've always been terrified of making them and I don't know why.  They were so easy.

3 Cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
3 ounces softened cream cheese

Granulated sugar for rolling them in.

I mixed the cream cheese and peppermint together and slowly mixed in all the powdered sugar.  I rolled them into balls, placed them in a bowl of sugar, then onto a wax paper and flattened them with the tines of a fork.  They sit for about 12 hours to dry, flip them and give them another 12 hours.  So easy, and delicious.
