I needed a quick Christmas dessert in a hurry and saw this on my SIL Kristy’s blog, Sweet Treats and More. The frosting has a hint of peppermint and pairs great with brownies or cupcakes. Thanks Kristy for the great idea!

Peppermint Cream Cheese Frosting

This frosting has just a hint of peppermint that I think pairs really well with chocolate items.


  • 1 8 ounce pkg cream cheese, soft
  • 1 stick butter soft
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • Dash of milk if needed


  1. Blend together and spread on brownies or cupcakes.
