Maple-Butter Frosting

Oh, my stars! You haven't had frosting until you've tried this one! We bake up a batch of chocolate cupcakes and top with this delectable sugar feast! Watch out, you may want to eat it right out of the bowl.

Maple-Butter Frosting

1 C unsalted butter (softened)
3 oz. cream cheese (softened)
2/3 C dark-brown sugar
¼ t. salt
¾ C maple syrup
¾ t. vanilla extract
1 C confectioners sugar

Beat the butter, cream cheese, brown sugar, and salt in a medium bowl with a mixer set on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Continue beating, and add the maple syrup and vanilla. Gradually add the confectioners sugar, increase the speed to high, and beat until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Chill for 1 hour before using.
