Peanut Butter Frosting

When I posted last week with the Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies, I told you all about the great dipping sauce/frosting that I used.  What really happened is that I had leftover frosting from the cupcakes below and decided to use it with the peanut butter cookies.  It was genius!  (if I do say so myself)

With the cupcakes, I am all about semi-homemade.  I used a boxed cake mix, added chocolate chips, and then made the peanut butter frosting from scratch.

The frosting recipe is from an amazing woman I used to work with.  She would make a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting for everyone's last day (we had one colleague who faked several last days to get more cakes-lol).

Here's the best peanut frosting I have ever had:

Peanut Butter Frosting

1/2 cup peanut butter
1 lb. 10x sugar (powdered sugar)
7-8 tbs milk
1 tsp vanilla

Blend sugar and peanut butter.  Alternatively, add sugar and milk.  Add vanilla and beat until smooth.


  1. Thx for sharing the recipe. That's the easiest peanut butter frosting ever! I'm thinking PB&J French toast!

  2. Mmmmm, I love that peanut butter frosting!!!! :0)
