Peanut Butter Frosting

I made this with chocolate cupcakes for Noah’s birthday. The kids enjoyed them and the little bit I had tasted like the filling of a peanut butter cup! Yum!

Peanut Butter Frosting


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp milk, or as needed
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar


  1. Mix the butter and peanut butter until well blended.
  2. Gradually add in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate the milk one tbsp at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in.
  3. The frosting should be thick and spreadable.
  4. Beat for 3 minutes for a fluffier texture.
  5. This recipe makes about 16 servings.

At about 209 calories per serving, this is something that I won’t be making often (even thought it’s super easy). I’m not a big fan of chocolate cake, though, so when Noah requested it for his birthday, I figured I’d do something to make it a little more interesting! 🙂 And it worked! The kids loved it, as you can see here!
