Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting

"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 (recipe #50349-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."

Questions & Replies

  1. Is this recipe gluten free?


  1. 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.
  2. Very good, but I also doubled the peanut butter. Next time, I will also cut the sugar back. It seems, even though I doubled the PB, it totally dominated the taste.
  3. Very good recipe! I will for sure make it again - awesome on top of Hershey's perfect chocolate cake.
  4. This is DELICIOUS! I subbed 1/3 cup of Hershey's Cocoa unsweetened for the sugar and it was still plenty sweet. Chocolate and Peanut Butter? WIN! And then I put it on "The Best Ever Banana Cake" (#67256) and made it EVEN BETTER than the best. :)
  5. 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!


  1. I added 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder and a little heavy cream until I got the texture I needed.
  2. Doubled peanut butter
  3. I doubled the peanut butter and probably only used 2 cups of powdered sugar and less milk
