Peanut Butter Frosting

2016-01-20 11.36.33RECIPE #170, DAY #206

ORIGINAL RECIPE: “Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting” from NICKIE75 on*

TIMING: 10 minutes


TOOLS: A stand or hand mixer


HEALTH: It’s frosting. I suppose it is protein-rich.

2016-01-20 11.36.39EXPERIENCE: My daughter just needed a peanut butter frosting for a cupcake concept. She found this one highly rated on AllRecipes and proclaimed it a keeper. I love peanut butter.

NOTES: We used Skippy Natural or Jiffy Natural creamy peanut butter.

I also do not condone softening butter in the microwave. You just have to remember to put it out at room temp early enough to gently soften it.


  1. Cream 1/2 cup softened, unsalted butter with 1 cup peanut butter. Add 2 cups powdered sugar, then milk 1 tablespoon at a time until frosting is smooth but not at all runny.
  2. Beat for 3 minutes, then set aside to use on cool cake or cupcakes.

Serve on top a cake or cupcakes. Obviously.
