Heavenly Peanut Butter Frosting
All I have to say about this frosting is I made some, piped it on cupcakes, and took them to work; I've never seen so many happy co-workers in my life. They raved about the frosting, and you will too if you're a peanut butter lover. If you're not a peanut butter lover, I'd recommend choosing something else because this is very peanut buttery!
Peanut Butter Frosting
Adapted from the Barefoot Contessa
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
dash kosher salt
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 - 2 Tb. water
1. Mix the peanut butter and butter until well blended and creamy. Slowly add the powdered sugar. Add vanilla and salt and mix until well combined.
2. Add whipping cream and beat on high speed for 3 - 5 minutes, or until frosting is fluffy and light brown. Add water as needed to get mixture to your desired consistency.
Makes enough to frost 18 - 24 cupcakes (depending on how much frosting you like).
