My favorite cream cheese frosting

Featuring Gentle Sweet! THM -S

True story: I tried to make Rashida’s brownie cheesecake dessert (Trim Healthy Future p. 284), but I only wanted the brownie. So I doubled the brownie directions, baked it in a 9 x 13… and got more of a cake that was so bitter I couldn’t eat it.

I don’t know if I missed the Gentle Sweet or added too much cocoa, but my only thought to redeem the entire pan was to make a cream cheese frosting to balance it out.

My back up plan for that was if it fails, I’ll mash it all together and make our first Trim Healthy Cake Pops…

It didn’t fail.

My afternoon coffee went so well with this, I had to blog and share for myself in the future… and you all, too.
