With that being said, this is not a totally new recipe. I've shared it before as a possible filling for these homemade Oreos, but it's tasty enough that I think it deserves its own post. I especially love this fluffy goodness on top of brownies. I made these brownie bites for my friend Patty's birthday today and she may or may not have been seen just licking the frosting off the top. No judgment here.
PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons milk or cream
- 2 cups powdered sugar
Mix butter and peanut butter in mixer.
Gradually mix in the powdered sugar, a small amount at a time, beating well after each addition.
When the frosting thickens, add needed milk, a little at a time.
Beat for at least 3 minutes or until it is a little fluffy.
NOTE: I would suggest using something other than natural peanut butter for this recipe. The separate oil in natural peanut butter makes it difficult to get the right texture for the frosting. Stick with hydrogenated oils on this one.
