Delicious Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe (the best)

I 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 :)

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 :)

Whatever way  you choose, most importantly enjoy it!
