Creamy Icing

**Originally posted on my old cooking blog. This is the last of my cooking blog posts. They've now all been moved over --thanks for sticking with me! It's great to have everything on one blog now!

I frosted a chocolate cake with this icing for Christmas this year. I added crushed candy canes for a seasonal look and taste.It was a hit! My mother-in-law gave me this recipe, which is also good plain or with candy bars or chocolate chips added in.

Creamy Icing

8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 (12 oz.) container Cool Whip
Chopped candy bars, chocolate chips or crushed peppermints

Beat cream cheese and sugars until creamy. Fold in Cool Whip and candy. Ice cake. This makes enough frosting for a 9x13 inch cake.
