Peanut Butter Frosting

Updated April 25, 2016

Peanut butter makes delicate and deliciously rich frosting, not to mention an absolutely divine addition to chocolate and vanilla cupcakes (or, of course, peanut butter cupcakes). This one is always a hit with the kids.

Store frosting in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to use or for up to 2 days. Let soften at room temperature before using.

This frosting can be prepared in a food processor with excellent results.

Regular peanut butter rather than natural-style peanut butter works best in this recipe.
