Delicious Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe (the best)

Posted on



I¬†love, love and I mean L.O.V.E peanut butter, to the point of where I will eat it straight from the jar. I know, I know gross…unless you too also LOVE peanut butter ūüôā

So it goes that I naturally adore a good Peanut Butter Frosting.
Now this one is tried and true of which I use again and again and  is always a hit. And it compliments a great piece of chocolate cake or can even be used as a filling for yummy chocolate cookies like {THESE}.

It’s quick and easy to make, but most importantly it’s GOOD.

This is what you will need:

  • 3/4 Cup Creamy Style Peanut Butter
  • 1 Stick of butter¬†softened¬†to room temperature
  • 4oz. Cream Cheese softened
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 2 1/2 Cups of Powdered Confectioners Sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp. Milk )

In a mixing bowl add the peanut butter, butter, cream cheese and vanilla extract. With a mixer cream together on  medium speed until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Add in the confectioners sugar a little a time and mix well. Add in the milk and mix until all ingredients are incorporated fully.

 

For a fluffier frosting, beat the frosting at high speed for an additional minute or two. If you want a stiffer frosting add in more confectioners sugar and mix at medium speed, until the desired consistency is achieved.

 

Voila….and there you have it!

 

Use it on anything from cakes, cupcakes, even as the frosting to make delicious cake pops or you can do what I sometimes do and just spoon it from the bowl…which is not recommended if you are on a diet ūüôā

 

Whatever way  you choose, most importantly enjoy it!


Happy Chocolate Peanut Butter Birthday

Posted on


My soon to be Sister in laws birthday was this past weekend, so I made some sweet treats in honor of her celebration!

These, well these are nothing more that a match  made in cupcake heaven, with delicious double chocolate cake and peanut butter butter-cream frosting. I adorned the top with shaved dark chocolate and a half a square of chocolate peeking out of the top! (You can find the recipe to make the Peanut Butter Frosting {HERE}

Now onto the chocolate lovers delight.

Well now, these ones appear simple, yet they are to die for if you are one of those people (me) who loves layer upon layer of chocolaty deliciousness!

Double chocolate cupcakes with chocolate fudge frosting and a simple, sprinkle of pink at the birthday girls request!

They look so innocently chocolate, until you take that first bite……mmmmmmmmm chocolate!

I can’t help but admit that I love, love,¬†love¬†that moment when people take that first bite of my treats and then exclaim….

“Oh my God¬†these¬†are amazing”

Happy Happy Jan!
