Peanut Butter Frosting, an easy fluffy and creamy homemade frosting recipe. This makes A LOT of frosting and meant for a large layered cake. BUT if you'd like a smaller amount check out the notes at the bottom for the measurements for "half" and "quarter" of the recipe.
Beat together peanut butter and softened butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and well combined. Beat in vanilla and salt. Then slowly beat in powdered sugar a little at a time.
Beat in milk a little at a time until frosting is smooth and creamy. You may not need all of the milk, or you might need slightly more depending on how thin you'd like your frosting.
SNAPPY TIPS: This makes A LOT of frosting. You can easily cut the recipe in half for smaller cakes or desserts.SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of milk, you can use a dairy substitute, heavy whipping cream, or half & half.HALF RECIPE MEASUREMENTS:(makes approximately 5 cups of frosting)
