Peanut Butter Frosting
This easy Peanut Butter Frosting recipe is a from scratch buttercream full of peanut butter! It's creamy and the perfect frosting for cakes, cupcakes, or brownies!
Servings 24 servings
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
Beat peanut butter and butter in a large bowl with a hand mixer until creamy (or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment).
Mix in 1 cup of powdered sugar at a time, slowly, until mixture is crumbly. Add salt and vanilla and mix, then add 1 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream.
Beat frosting until smooth, adding more heavy whipping cream until you reach the desired consistency (I always add 6 tablespoons).
Pipe or frost as desired.
