While looking for a new frosting recipe a few months ago, I came across this one. While slightly more complicated than normal cream cheese frosting, it is creamy and delicious. We found it is actually an amazing German Pancake topping.
1 6 oz box of instant pudding (This determines the flavor of your frosting)
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup milk
8 oz of whipped topping
4 oz cream cheese, softened
Take your cream cheese and mix it until smooth. Set aside. Mix your first three ingredients until smooth. Add cream cheese and then whipped topping, mixing while you go. Set in the fridge over night. Frost right before serving. This frosting doesn’t sit out a room temperature very well for any length of time. I found it was best to just frost a few cupcakes that we were going to eat and then put the frosting back in the fridge, covered, until we wanted more cupcakes. This frosting sure didn’t last long in our house!
