Peanut Butter Frosting - Extra Rich

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Digboo

Made with lots of PNB - extra yummy - perfect with my chocolate cupcakes. Developed this recipe when none of the ones I found were rich enough - very dense and flavorful.

I made this to go on a dark chocolate cupcake and it was AMAZING! I think the tabslepoon of crisco, salt, and all the extra peanut butter made it so decadent without being overly sugary. I used natural PB (the skippy smooth) so it was a little less sweet to begin with and I think that helped too. Just great!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the peanut butter, butter, crisco and vanilla until well blended.
  2. Add the first cup of powdered sugar and the salt
  3. Continue to add the remaining powdered sugar
  4. Add part or all of the cream to finalize the texture you want.
  5. I immediately put in piping bag and pipe on cooled cupcakes or spread on a cake. You can refrigerate and use later.
