"If you like peanut butter you'll love this frosting, great on chocolate cakes but for a real peanut butter experience try it on a peanut butter cake. If you don't have cream, you may substitute milk."

  1. In a large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in 1/2 of the confectioner's sugar. Mix in 1/4 cup of the cream. Beat in the remaining confectioners' sugar. If necessary, add a little more cream or milk until the frosting reaches a good spreading consistency. Makes enough to frost one 2 layer 9 inch cake or one 9x13 inch cake.

Ok, with modifications this is 5 stars but the original recipe is probably only worth 3! So 4 for a compromise. IF you use 2 cups confectioner's sugar and 1 1/2 cups peanut butter, you'll get ...

I have been on the hunt for the perfect peanut butter frosting, and from reading the reviews for this, I thought I had found it. However, my search will continue. I was not impressed with this...

I thought this was very good. I made it according to the recipe. (Please don't mark recipes down when you make a bunch of changes in its preparation.) I thought it did taste like peanut butter...

Very rich and creamy. Used milk instead of cream and only needed 3 cups of powdered sugar. I spread it on Dark Chocolate Cake II from this site, chilled it,and then drizzled Satiny Chocolate Gla...

Wow, this was one of the most disappointing recipes that I have ever tried from this site. I really struggled not to rate it lower. I ended up having to doctor this up a ton to get it to an edib...
