Updated on October 11, 2013

I grew up in a small community in Northwest Arkansas. My life is a busy balance of family and friends, work and play, good times and bad.

I was going through an old recipe book that belonged to my great aunt and found several recipes that had been cut out of newspapers, magazines, and food packages. This is simple recipe that caught my eye.

Peanut Butter Frosting

Ingredients:
½ cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup or ½ stick butter or margarine
2 cups powder sugar
¼ cup milk
1 tsp vanilla

Source

Combine all ingredients and beat until smooth. Makes around 1 ¾ cups – enough to frost a 9-inch cake. The frosting goes on easier at room temperature. Let cake cool before frosting.

Helpful Tips:

This peanut butter frosting can be made in large batches and frozen for future use. Simply place 1 to 2 cups of frosting into a freezer zip-lock bag, squeeze the air out, and freeze. When you are ready to use the frosting, get a bag out of the freezer and leave on the counter for a couple hours to thaw. If you are in a hurry, place the bag in warn - not hot - water until thawed. Once the frosting is thawed, squish the frosting around in the bag to help soften. Then simply cut one corner of the bag and you now have a "decorator bag" as an easy way to squeeze the frosting onto cakes and cupcakes!

Frosting Ideas!

Make chocolate cup cakes, add peanut butter frosting, and top with mini peanut butter cups! Or top with a few M&Ms, Reese's Pieces, chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips.

Make peanut butter cookies and add 1 to 2 tablespoons of peanut butter frosting between cookies to make cookie sandwiches!

Make a spice cake or carrot cake and top with peanut butter frosting instead of cream cheese frosting. The combination of flavors is amazing!

Make gooey brownies and top with a thin layer of peanut butter frosting while the brownies are still warm.
