Peppermint cream cheese frosting

A totally yummy-scrumptious-delicious frosting; perfect for any Holiday dessert!

This frosting is very similar to Peppermint Buttercream Frosting, but ever-so-slightly different. I would willingly take a bath in either one. They are both totally yummy-scrumptious-delicious.

In a large bowl, combine:

6 oz. cream cheese

3 Tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.

Gradually add 3 cups of powdered sugar, beating well.

If necessary, stir in milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, in order to make it of spreading consistency.

I'll let you know the measurements after I fill my bathtub and bathe in it.
