Recently, when I went to make a recipe using Chocolate Cream Cheese, I realized that I had forgotten to buy it. And since I couldn’t go back to the grocery store, I decided to make my own.
This Chocolate Cream Cheese Recipe is only 3 ingredients and is quick and easy! And my philosophy is that taking anything and making a chocolate version out of it is just a really good thing to do. And it’s only 2 WW points on the blue plan!
My 3 Ingredient Homemade Chocolate Yogurt is another great example of making something even better by adding chocolate. You can’t even buy chocolate yogurt in any grocery stores where I live!
Chocolate Cream Cheese Recipes
When I was looking for chocolate cream cheese recipes, they all had chocolate chips or powdered sugar and that’s not what I wanted. I didn’t want powdered sugar because it tastes too much like frosting. And I wanted something that used cocoa because it’s easier and I didn’t have to fuss around with melting chocolate chips.
Not only is chocolate cream cheese great in other recipes, like my Gingerbread Fruit and Nut Cookie Wreath, it makes a really great snack on its own~! You can use this as you would a chocolate spread on toast, bagels, rice cakes, pancakes, french toast, graham crackers, fruit and whatever else you like to put chocolate spread on!
This chocolate cream cheese spread is also one of the key ingredients on my Carrot Cake Dessert Pizza!
How to make chocolate cream cheese
I use agave in this recipe instead of honey; I much prefer the taste. This natural sweetener is valued as a vegan alternative to honey and touted for its low glycemic index. Although agave packs 20 calories per teaspoon, five more than granulated sugar, like honey, it’s sweeter than sugar, so you need less to achieve the same level of sweetness. I also use a low-fat cream cheese to reduce the calories and make it Weight Watchers friendly! However, you can substitute honey if you don’t have agave.
