This Peanut Butter Buttercream Recipe 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 perfectly peanut buttery, has a smooth and creamy consistency that is great for piping, and it is an incredible filling and frosting for chocolate cakes and cupcakes!
I absolutely love peanut butter buttercream 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! Make it once and it’ll be your go-to peanut butter buttercream frosting for life! YUM.
Looking for a great chocolate cake or cupcake recipe? We love our Scratch Classic Chocolate Cake recipe, our Scratch Chocolate Cupcake recipe, as well as our doctored cake mix recipes for Chocolate Sour Cream Cake and Chocolate (Doctored) Cake.
**In the recipe, we note that the kind of peanut butter does make a difference in consistency. Peanut Butter labeled “natural” is not going to be a smooth. We love creamy peanut butter brands like Jif, Peter Pan, etc. for this frosting!
