Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

We’ve all enjoyed cream cheese frosting on our favorite carrot cake & pumpkin bars, but have you ever tried chocolate cream cheese frosting? The tangy-ness of the cream cheese, mixed with chocolate, offers a fun and different chocolate frosting than the norm. The recipe is the perfect pair for any chocolate cake but I especially enjoyed it with this Sourdough Chocolate Cake.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened


  1. Put all frosting ingredients into a small mixing bowl.
  2. Using a hand mixer, whip ingredients until the frosting is smooth, creamy, and there are no white streaks.
  3. Frost your cake after the cake has completely cooled. If you’d like, add toasted nuts, coconut, chopped candy, berries, sprinkles, or whatever you love to top of your cake!
