This frosting is so smooth and delicious on any cupcakes or cakes.
This frosting is made with dark melted chocolate and a chocolate paste made of cocoa powder and hot water.
I add a spoon of strong coffee in the chocolate frosting make this frosting even more delicious.
This frosting works amazingly on cupcakes and cakes if you don’t like coffee or cream cheese just omit it.

flinke deg , disse cupcakes ser helt nyddelig ut…
Hvor mange cupcakes blir dette frosting til?? Mvh Juliane
De så helt fantastiske ut, men er det en spesiell type sjokolade du bruker i frostingen? Eller er det samme hvilken man tar?
Hvor mange cupcakes vil denne frostingen holde til?? Tenkte å prøve å lage dine Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes med denne frostingen, men er litt usikker på om det ville bli godt eller bli kvalmende.
hello there…is it philadelphiaost with Freia chocolate same as nutella?
Hei, hva er det mørke i den lille skålen? Er det kaffe eller vaniljeekstrakt?
Det er kaffe om man ønsker mokka smak. Bra at du så det. skal oppdatere. Tusen takk.
Hello Manuela !I’m from Russia .I want to tell you u’ve got a wonderful site ,I’m happy to find it !Waiting your books to be translated in my language 🙂 I’ve got one question about this recipe ,can I use common philadelphia ,cause chocolate is not sold here ,maybe it’s possible just to add more chocolate or cocao?
Hello Olia and Virly Amalia, you can use regular cream cheese, just one extra tablespoonful of cocoa powder and a little extra powdered sugar to taste.
Hi, can I replace the Philadelphia chocolate cream cheese with just cream cheese? We don’t have that here ♥
Can I use the normal cream cheese?
Hi Fernanda, you can indeed just use normal cream cheese, but you may want to add a little extra cocoa powder if you do.
Hi, can I remove the chocolate used in this recipe to make regular cream cheese frosting instead?
Hi Carolyn, there is quite a lot of chocolate in this recipe, so the texture would be quite different if you left it out. Alternatively try one of the other cream cheese recipes here on passionforbaking.com, for example:
İ used this frosting but it tastes butter
My cake came out very tasty….thank you for the amazing recipe…my question is
a)-few ingredient 200gm is 1 cup and 1 ingredient 250gm is 1 cup…so which one shall we follow
b)-what do I do with the extra Philadelphia chocolate cream cheese
Hi Neha, the grams and cup measurements vary according to type of ingredient. 1 cup flour, for instance, doesn’t weight the same as 1 cup butter.
Cream cheese can be used in many recipes, or just as a spread on a piece of toast.
Hello. Could i replace butter with sour cream?
You can try! but not sure it will be so stable!
