3-Ingredient Cream Cheese Frosting

This 3-ingredient cream cheese frosting is hands down one of my favorites. I love that it doesn’t require too many ingredients, it is made with ingredients that i usually hold stock of, it is easy to make, and aside all else, it tastes incredible. That’s the most important part..

Not only does this frosting go well with this Speedy Chocolate Cake, it goes well with many other cakes including cupcakes.

This portion is enough for a 4 layer cake, 8-10 inches in diameter. If you want to use it for cupcakes, divide the recipe in half as you will not need so much frosting.

Ingredients:

16oz Cream Cheese (Philadelphia) (room temp)

14oz can of Condensed Milk

16oz tub of Cool Whip (thawed)

Instructions:

Into a stand mixer or a mixing bowl, add 2 packs of the softened cream cheese and cream until it is lump-free. (If you forget to take it out of the fridge in advance, you can microwave for about 30 seconds, it’ll help ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Once the cream cheese is lump free, add condensed milk and mix to incorporate.

Lastly, add thawed cool whip. Whip on medium-high speed until everything is well combined and the frosting is of thick consistency.

Pipe or spread onto cakes and cupcakes.

Enjoy!
