"This is a wonderfully creamy frosting that goes well with pumpkin bread, carrot cake, chocolate cake, on cookies, or between cookies. If you want chocolate frosting, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup cocoa, according to how rich you want it." — MakeItHealthy

1 (8 ounce) package
Neufchatel cheese, softened
sifted confectioners' sugar
very easy to make very nice flavor. It went very well with my chocolate cup cakes. I will use this again.
My first cream cheese frosting attempt. Easy and delicious. I do think it was a bit sweet (probably because in the adjustment from the original the sugar was not halved like the other ingredients). Fully covered "Sam's Famous Carrot Cake" with a little left over. Will make again-and-again.
Very easy. Went on the cake very smooth. A little too sweet for me. May try again with less sugar.
