Recipe

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.

Yield : Makes 2 cups (500 mL), enough to frost 16 cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (500 mL) confectioner’s (icing) sugar
  • ½ cup (125 mL) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ cup (125 mL) creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) milk

Directions

1. In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together confectioner’s sugar, butter and salt until creamy. Add peanut butter, beating well. Add milk and beat until smooth and creamy.

2. Spread frosting on cooled cupcakes.

Notes

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.
