I LOVE peanut butter. I could eat it every day. It’s healthy right? Protein and all that. Now combine peanut butter with chocolate and I am one happy girl. I have had this recipe for years, and it never fails.
How to make The Best Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting
You will need:
- ½ cup Butter
- 1 heaping cup Peanut Butter
- 4 cups Powdered Sugar
- 2 tsp. Vanilla
- 1/4 cup Milk
- Decorating Bags
- Wilton 2D Decorating Tip
Our Best Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting recipe is based on our Best Buttercream Frosting. If you haven’t tried it yet, you can find the recipe here. It is the best buttercream frosting you have ever tasted! To make this delicious Peanut Butter version of our yummy frosting you will need Peanut Butter, Butter and Powdered Sugar, Vanilla and Milk.
First, add 1 heaping cup of peanut butter and 1/2 cup of softened butter into a mixing bowl.
Mix the butter and peanut butter together until they are fully combined.
Add 4 cups (or 1 pound) of powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons of vanilla and 1/4 cup of milk to the bowl. Mix carefully at first so as not to send the powdered sugar flying over the kitchen. Once the powdered sugar in combined, turn up the mixer to medium speed. Add more milk if necessary to get the Best Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting to be the right consistency which is a little thicker than regular buttercream frosting but thin enough to spread on a cupcake or cake.
How much frosting will you need? That always depends on how thick or thin you apply the frosting or how much decorating you do but here are a couple of guidelines. Our recipe should make enough Best Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting to cover a 9″ x 13″ sheet cake or a two-layer 8″ cake. If you are making cupcakes, you should be able to frost 24 cupcakes if you apply the frosting with a knife. If you swirl on the frosting with a pastry bag like we have done here, you should be able to frost 15-18 cupcakes depending on the size of the swirl.
Our Best Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting is super delicious. It tastes great on chocolate cake or chocolate cupcakes. And it is out of the world on Brownies! And it could not be easier to made. Your family will love anything you top with this amazing frosting.
