I love peanut butter- and I have finally found the best peanut butter frosting recipe! It took a lot of trial and error, ingredient swapping, and cupcake tasting (thank goodness I have a lot of cupcake tasters!), but I finally perfected this recipe!
When I think of cupcakes, chocolate and vanilla are the first flavors that come to mind. And chocolate and vanilla are great! But after perfecting a great chocolate icing, vanilla icing, and cream cheese frosting, I was ready to try something new. We love peanut butter around here, so peanut butter frosting it was!
It turns out, it took a lot of tries to get it right- sometimes it was too sweet, sometimes too thick, and sometimes it just didn’t have enough peanut butter flavor! But this recipe, literally, takes the cake. The frosting has a great consistency as well- making it easy to pipe (I use these decorator bags and these tips).
The recipe is so versatile too- use it on cupcakes, cakes, brownies, or cookies- it always tastes good! I used it on these Mini Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes last weekend and they were definitely a hit! Do you have a favorite frosting recipe?
