This Peanut Butter Buttercream is one of my all-time FAVORITE frosting recipes. We’ve made it for years, and I wouldn’t change a thing about this delicious buttercream! It is full of peanut buttery flavor, has a smooth and creamy consistency that is great for piping, and it is incredible with chocolate (of course!) ;0)
I love it swirled high onto cupcakes, sandwiched in between layers of rich chocolate cake, or injected into the centers of chocolate cupcakes to make them even better! For a little variation (especially when using this as a filling) I sometimes stir in mini chocolate chips! I will warn you that this frosting is extremely addictive…and you may have to hide the bowl immediately after mixing up a batch!
As we mention in the recipe below, we did find that creamy peanut butters (not Natural or Reduced Fat) are going to give you the delicious frosting that you are looking for!
