Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

I went searching for a chocolate cream cheese frosting recipe for Chase and Emmy's birthday cake yesterday. Here is what I ended up using. I thought it was pretty good, but am still open to suggestions if someone has something better. I took suggestions from several different posted recipes and the recipes were all over the place on the cream cheese, butter, sugar ratio. I ended up trying to stay close to Best Bites regular cream cheese frosting ratios.

8 oz. package cream cheese, room temp
1/2 c. butter, room temp.
1 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
2 tbsp. heavy cream
1/2 c. coco powder
4 c. powdered sugar, approx.

Beat cream cheese, butter, and extract until light and fluffy. Add in cream, coco, and powder sugar and beat until smooth and fully mixed. Depending on desired stiffness add more or less powder sugar and frost away.
