Baking Is Science For Hungry People: Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting

Hello Baking Fiends!

I had shared a Chocolate Cupcake recipe earlier this week, and while I had served some of them without frosting of any kind, I had also made a Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting for them that. Was. HEAVEN. Not to brag, but I literally was sitting there with the wooden spoon after I’d bagged the frosting, and just licking the spoon clean – I refused to let any of that yummyness go to waste! Have no fear, I didn’t lick until after it was all done… that would just be gross (but delicious still)…!

So, for the frosting, here is what you’ll do:

Cream 1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter in a stand mixer until incredibly creamy but a bit sticky.

Add in 2 teaspoons vanilla extract and 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter.

Cream the pb+butter mixture until very thick and, well, creamy.

Gradually add in about 2 1/2 cups of powdered/confectioner’s sugar and continue beating on low-medium until well combined.

Frost to enjoy to maximum deliciousness!

Frost your cake, cupcakes, graham crackers, vanilla wafers, or wooden spoon — and enjoy! 😉

Let me know how you like this frosting, would love to hear feedback from y’all, as always!

Craft You Later,
