This frosting recipe I’m going to share with you tonight is honestly one of the best frostings I’ve ever tasted or made. It’s a super fluffy, incredibly delicious, and uber-peanut buttery!!! Several months ago, I was asked to make the cupcakes for a baby shower, and the mom had asked for chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting. I used a chocolate cake mix, but made this frosting and they were such a hit. It made a ton too, so I froze what was leftover and used it at a later date to make some over the top brownies. Honestly, I think this would be good on just about any dessert that you wanted to try it on. I loved the fluffy, light texture, but I also love that it doesn’t hold back on the taste of peanut butter. Oh, and did I mention how easy it was to make?
Peanut Butter Frosting (from Sugar and Soul)
1 c. softened butter
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3-4 c. confectioner’s sugar
4-5 tbsp. heavy cream
- In a large bowl, cream the butter. Add the vanilla and peanut butter and beat well.
- Add the sugar a cup at a time, alternating with the cream.
- Beat on medium-high for 2-3 minutes til the frosting is light and fluffy.
Make it. You won’t be sorry!
