A wonderful creamy frosting! Make lots, double or triple the recipe and freeze in 1 cup containers, this frosting freezes well. Although you most certainly can use half and half cream, whipping cream produces a creamier texture for this frosting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl using an electric mixer mix/beat together peanut butter, butter and vanilla until smooth (about 1 minute).
  2. Stir in confectioners sugar, cocoa and salt.
  3. Add in whipping cream or half and half, beat with mixer, until you reach desired consistency (you might have to use more than 2 cups confectioners sugar).

Absolutely loved this! I had some plain graham crackers I wanted to use up and made this to have like a spread on them. It was wonderful! The peanut butter does not overpower the chocolate and vice versa. Wonderful recipe. Thanks for sharing!
