This frosting recipe will knock you right off that diet wagon you might be on.
I originally got it from Amy, who originally got it from someone else, and it originally came with this recipe for Strawberry Cake, which is sinfully delicious itself. Here's the original recipe:
1 white cake mix + ingredients listed on the box
1 single serving size strawberry yogurt
Mix the cake according to directions, adding the yogurt with the other ingredients. Bake as normal. Cool, frost and then top with frozen, sweetened strawberries (thawed).
Cream Cheese Frosting
2 small boxes vanilla pudding
2 (8 oz) blocks cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
16-24 ounces Cool Whip
Blend the pudding, cream cheese and powdered sugar together until smooth. Blend in the Cool Whip last. The more you use, the lighter the frosting is. I use the max amount. This recipe makes a crazy amount of frosting and should probably be halved for a 9x13 cake. I make the entire recipe when I make cupcakes so there's plenty to pile on top of each cupcake.
Here's where the chocolate comes in. Just swap out the vanilla pudding for chocolate pudding and you have Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting. It's sooooo good!! The picture above is a cupcake made using this recipe, then topped with a huge amount of frosting. Just plan to go on a 5 mile run after you eat one. ☺
