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.
This delicious 5 Minute Chocolate Pudding Cream Cheese Frosting is super easy to make! With just 4 simple ingredients, all you need to do is put the ingredients in a bowl and mix!
5-Minute Chocolate Pudding Cream Cheese Frosting
- 16 ounces Whipped Cream Cheese
- 5.9 ounces Chocolate Instant Pudding Box (or your choice of flavor!)
- 1 cup Powder Sugar
- 1 tbsp Pure Vanilla Extract
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix on medium to high speed. If it's too thick, add more powder sugar until it's the consistency you prefer.
The kids loved decorating these yummy Valentine’s Day cupcakes with cute little heart sprinkles!
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!
