Dream Whip Frosting Recipe

Rick found this recipe and good for me because when we need a good frosting recipe I just put him to work.  He kicked it into gear and helped me out this weekend with the Halloween S'more Cupcakes with this recipe:

1 8oz. package cream cheese
2 T. butter, softened
1/2 t. salt
1 pkg. Dream Whip
1/2 t. almost extract
1 t. vanilla
about 3 c. powdered sugar

Beat cream cheese and butter until smooth and blended.  Add extract to a small bowl, mix in the salt to dissolve then add mixture to cream cheese.  Add Cream Whip and mix well.  Finally, add the powdered sugar until frosting is desired thickness--it will stiffen once you refrigerate.
Chill frosting and cupcakes for at least an hour before piping frosting on top.  Even better if you want refrigerate overnight so the frosting won't be grainy.

**for this recipe, we added a jar of marshmallow topping and then enough powdered sugar to get the consistency we needed.

**Rick thinks that he is good enough to work at Sweet Tooth Fairy Bakery.  But then he remembered how much he likes cupcakes and decided to keep his day job.

Yum. That's what I do with treat recipes too --just keep adding stuff until I get the results I'm looking for :)
