Peanut Butter Frosting

I am rather selective when it comes to my peanut butter consumption. I am not your eat a spoonful type of girl, nor would I ever choose peanut butter ice cream, cookies, ect. I more like it with green apples and jelly. That's about it.

My Thriving Husband on the other hand...obsessed. So, naturally, I whip up his favorite chocolate cake whenever there is cause to celebrate...and even when I am just feeling extra nice.


Please forgive me for not making the chocolate cakes from scratch, I can only do so much. But frosting? Now, that I can bust out on the regular.

I typically like to do double decker chocolate rounds. If you too are into that, then get those cakes cooked and cooling before whipping up this easy frosting.


As they cool, you can get started. Gather your ingredients and mix the cream cheese, butter and peanut butter.


Once those three are whipped smooth, add in the sugar (I would recommend one cup at a time to avoid a sugar cloud taking over your kitchen) and vanilla. 



Once you are mixed the only thing left to do besides frost your cake is to exercise restraint. Even me, a non-peanut butter lover has a hard time...it must be the massive amounts of added sugar that hooks me.


With your cakes cooled, set the bottom layer on your cake stand (or plate) and frost the top.


Add the second layer and frost the top again.


 Lastly, frost the sides and BOOM, you are done!


All that is left to do is cut into that beauty and enjoy! And trust, enjoy you will. Peanut butter obsessed or not.


Have you ever seen anything so easy?! What is your favorite frosting recipe?

Strive to thrive,
