Coffee Cream Cheese Frosting {Recipe}

Coffee Cream Cheese Frosting.  Oh the things I could do with it.  Smother it on a cupcake (obv.), slap it on a piece of french toast, eat it with a ginormous spoon while hiding in a closet.  The possibilities are endless.

Papercuts has so deliciously gifted us this delectable recipe.  I hope you’ll go and pay her a visit on her site too.  Without her, the world would be void of this recipe, and I’d be hunkered down in a closet with just a spoon and empty bowl.

Coffee Cream Cheese Frosting

1 – 8 oz pkg cream cheese

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/8 tsp salt

2 cups confectioners sugar

4 tsp instant coffee grounds

  1.  In a medium bowl mix together cream cheese and sugar
  2. Beat in the vanilla, salt, and coffee until spreading consistency.  Once completely blended, frosting will have a light coffee color.  Cool frosting in the refrigerator to thicken to spreading consistency in warmer weather.

Note:  This frosting is perfect on chocolate cake and cupcakes.  If you’re a coffee lover, add more coffee for a deeper coffee flavor.

Like what you see?  Show them some sugar…
