I wanted a maple frosting but didn't want to use cream cheese as it is often too rich, so I experimented and here is what I came up with. I used it on the PUMPKIN MUFFINS FILLED WITH SPICED MARSHMALLOW CREAM (recipe found here in J.A.P. by Didi Dalaba) Hope you try it and let me know what you think!
