I won’t lie.

I’m too damn lazy lớn make my own frosting nowadays.

With healthy brands out there like Simple Mills and Miss Jones, I’m just not super interested in beating 4 cups of powdered sugar together.

So for this one, I used Miss Jones Cream Cheese Frosting, which everyone I’ve ever served it too loves. (I frequently use it for my Starbucks copy cat cranberry bliss bars during the holidays and people almost comment on how much they love the frosting.)

All that being said, if you want lớn make your own frosting, I suggest trying my Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese Frosting, the greek yogurt lowers the calories, but it still has a rich cream cheese taste too it.
