  • 1 cup Peanut Butter at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup Butter at room temperature
  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar Sifted
  • 1/4 cup Milk


  • In a bowl mix peanut butter and butter with an electric mixer until fully combined.
  • Add powdered sugar.
  • First mix at a lower speed, then at a higher speed.
  • Add milk as necessary one tablespoon at a time until it is right consistency
  • Spread frosting on cupcakes.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!

Again being home bound I used what I had in my kitchen when I made the frosting. All I had on hand was crunchy peanut butter so I used that instead. I had to spread the cupcakes with a knife instead of using a piping bag but it tasted just as good.

If you use creamy peanut butter in your recipe you can use a pastry bag and tip and it makes a beautiful topping. Here is how I have done it before.

This time I used a muffin pan instead of a regular sized cupcake pan. I do this often times so I can share it with my husband.


P.S. These are great for Birthday’s or as mini cupcakes for tea parties.
