Cream Cheese White Chocolate Frosting
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 Stick softened butter
2 Cups White Chocolate Chips, melted
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 Cups Powdered sugar
Blend the first 2 ingredients together for 1 minute
then add the melted white chocolate, 1 tsp. vanilla and then 2 Cups powdered sugar - 1 cup at a time.
Chill for at least 15 minutes before piping this onto your cupcakes. If you chill it for too long that is fine, it will just become more solid and you'll need to microwave it on defrost (30% power) for about 45 sec. to 1 min. or until it will stir but NOT be melty looking.
