I got this from Barefoot Contessa at Home. it goes great on Chocolate Cupcakes. This is enough to frost 24 cupcakes.


  1. Put sugar, peanut butter, butter, vanilla and salt in mixer. Mix on medium low until creamy, scraping with spatula as you work.
  2. Add the cream and beat on high until the mixture is light and smooth.

I really liked this frosting not only was it nice light and creamy but it is much less sweet compared to other peanut butter frostings.

This is very creamy & light - great consistency. It's not too sweet either, which is what I find with a lot of frostings. I wish it had a bit more PB flavor. I used it to frost chocolate cupcakes, then I covered them with Reese's Pieces. :)

Very rich and creamy. Made it for frosting on a chocolate cake and it was a hit. Thanks
