YUM!!! This is an excellent frosting which incorporates two of my favorite things...peanut butter and cream cheese and it's also easy to make. I used it to frost a banana cake I made (Taqueria Victoria's Banana Cake-which is an excellent cake recipe) and it was soooo good! I found this recipe on another recipe website. I'm thinking it would also be great on chocolate cake.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together cream cheese and peanut butter with mixer until smooth.
  2. Add vanilla and powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, along with the milk or cream and beat until spreading consistency.
  3. (I used only 3 cups powdered sugar and 2-3 tbsp. of milk).
  4. Spread on cooled cake.

I liked this recipe a lot. It has a very nice texture. I had interesting results subbing maple syrup for the vanilla (realized I was out too late). It ended up tasting just like Bit-O-Honey candy.

Absolutely delicious!! Very smooth and perfect on chocolate cupcakes! We used only 2 tbsp of milk and 3 cups of powdered sugar. I would highly recommend making this!
