So I made my standard chocolate cake and sandwiched the two layers with a thick layer of this new-to-me chocolate frosting. It's a combination of butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, melted chocolate and sour cream. And it's delicious. Like eat it with a spoon delicious!
Chocolate frosting with cream cheese and sourcream
recipe source : Annie's Eats
6 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
6 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
4 tbsp. unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
2/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. sour cream
Melt the chocolate and set aside to cool until just barely warm. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and butter on medium-high speed about 3-4 minutes. Mix in the confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Beat in the melted chocolate and then the sour cream. Continue beating until the mixture is smooth and well blended.
