I have a new “favorite thing” – peanut butter frosting! I love peanut butter, and just recently started experimenting with peanut butter frosting…only when I was out of cream cheese. Why didn’t I think of this before? Delicious topped on chocolate cupcakes – and even better eaten out of the bowl with a spoon…which may have been what happened the first time I made this.
Try it – and let me know what you think!
Peanut Butter Frosting
1 stick (4 oz.) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter (creamy)
2 – 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Start by creaming together the softened butter and peanut butter in a large bowl.
Next, add the 1/4 cup whole milk, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir to combine.
Add the 2 cups powdered sugar, and stir gently.
Depending on the desired consistency, gently add the 1/2 cup remaining powdered sugar, and the 2 tablespoons whole milk and beat until smooth and creamy.
Use as desired.
Frosting makes enough to frost 24 cupcakes – or a 13×9-inch cake generously.
