White chocolate peppermint cream cheese frosting

White Chocolate Peppermint Cream Cheese Frosting


3 cups

10 minutes

6 ounces white chocolate coarsely chopped
4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese at room temperature
4 tablespoons butter at room temperature
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
2-2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar sifted
  1. Place the white chocolate in a small glass bowl in the microwave oven on high power for one minute. Remove the bowl from the oven and stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until it is smooth. Set the chocolate aside to cool.
  2. Place the cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until well combined, 30 seconds. Stop the machine. Add the melted white chocolate and blend on low speed until just combined, 30 seconds.
  3. Add the peppermint extract and two cups of the confectioners' sugar and blend on low until the sugar is incorporated, 30 seconds more. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat until the frosting is fluffy, one minute more, adding up to cup more sugar if needed to make a spreadable consistency.
  4. Feel free to fold in up to cup crushed peppermint candy for a crunchy and creamy frosting!
  5. Will frost 24 cupcakes generously. (see Cake Doctor's Red-less Velvet Cupcakes).
