Chocolate Coffee Cream Cheese Frosting || Recipe


How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psalms 119:103

When we here at Garlands of Grace aren’t sewing or packaging headcoverings for orders, we all enjoy baking very much. :) In our house, Fridays are for cupcakes! I made a vanilla pound cake base and needed the perfect icing. Chocolate was necessary and a bit of coffee wouldn’t hurt a bit! ;) Add a bit of cream cheese? Yes please! Chocolate Coffee Cream Cheese Frosting was developed and very much enjoyed and I thought I would share the recipe with you! :)


  • 6-7 cups powdered confectioner sugar
  • 2 sticks butter {softened}
  • 1 oz package cream cheese {softened}
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Dissolve instant coffee in milk. Place all ingredients in mixing bowl and beat with kitchen aid or mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes!
  2. Scrap sides and bottom of bowl and beat for an additional minute.
  3. Generously ice your dessert and enjoy! :)
