Sweet and Salty Peanut Butter Frosting
Ok, ok, I DID eat it with a spoon. Then I ate some more on a chocolate cupcake, and dang it, where are some graham crackers when I need?
I love the creamy mild peanut butter flavor, the tang of the salt and that it is not overpoweringly sweet.
1/2 ccreamy peanut butter
1/2 cunsalted butter
1 tspvanilla powder or vanilla extract
1/2 bottleyellow food coloring
2-3 cpowdered sugar
1 tspfine sea salt (not as fine as regular table salt, but not as big as kosher salt)
3 Tbsp2 % milk
How to Make Sweet and Salty Peanut Butter Frosting
- Let the butter soften at room temperature for 2-3 hours.
- Put the butter, peanut butter, food coloring if using, and vanilla powder in a large bowl and cream with a mixer.
- Stop the mixer, add the powdered sugar and mix again. It will be clumpy and yucky, just keep mixing. After 30 seconds or so, it should come together.
- Add the milk, more or less, to get the desired consistency.
Mix well and then sprinkle with salt and mix in.
