Cream Cheese Cookie Dough Frosting

My mother-in-law appeared with cupcakes recently.  Which may not be any big deal on most days, but this time she said she had used a new frosting – Cream Cheese Cookie Dough Frosting!  All I can say is that she had me at cookie dough!

Cream Cheese Cookie Dough Frosting


  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 3 cups powdered sugar, more if needed


  1. Cream softened cream cheese and butter together in a large bowl.
  2. Add brown sugar, vanilla, and Dream Whip – evenly beat together.
  3. Add milk, flour, powdered sugar – beat to evenly incorporate until smooth
  4. Stir in mini chocolate chips

NOTE: We have a friend who is quite the baker herself.  She LOVED this recipe and suggested using it as cannoli filling, which she has done and says is fabulous as well!
