I am excited about this recipe! I actually came up with the idea when we were celebrating my nephews birthday and everyone wanted chocolate cream cheese frosting for the cupcakes. I wanted the ingredients to be simple because we were there for a short visit and I didn’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

After a successful run, and everyone raving about the frosting, I knew I had scored something amazing and had to recreate it at home!

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I thought it would be fun to whip up some Valentine’s Day cupcakes and frosting with the kids. I love having my kids in the kitchen with me because it teaches them at a young age how to navigate the kitchen and learn a great skill.

What I love about this recipe is that it isn’t too sweet, like most frostings, which makes it a winner in our house! The BEST part is that you can change the flavor anytime you make it by choosing a different flavor instant pudding mix! If that’s not a good reason to stock up on instant pudding mix, I don’t know what is!
