Chocolate Hazelnut Cream Cheese Frosting

This recipe by Anne Burrell has a delicate hazelnut flavor and is a nice change from the standard chocolate frosting, but the cream cheese was a bit overpowering and actually made the frosting a bit bitter. Next time I would add more sugar or less cream cheese to balance the flavors out a bit better. 

·         8 ounces cream cheese, softened
·         1/2 cup chocolate hazelnut spread (recommended: Nutella)
·         1 teaspoon vanilla extract
·         3 cups powdered sugar

Add the cream cheese, chocolate hazelnut spread and vanilla extract to a large bowl and beat with a hand mixer until smooth. Slowly mix in the powdered sugar, scraping down sides of the bowl, as needed, until the frosting is smooth.
