  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 2 tbsp. peanut butter
  • 2 c confectioners sugar
  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl an stir until fully incorporated. (a handheld mixer works very well here)
  2. Use more or less water to reach your desired consistency

Barely adapted from Allrecipes.

This is a great base recipe in that you can really modify it to meet your needs!

If you want it to drizzle over the sides of a bundt cake use more water.  If you want it to pipe onto cookies use less water.  Substitute milk or coffee or vodka for the water.  Use chunky peanut butter and drizzle onto breakfast muffins.

The sky is the limit!

Peanut Butter Glaze Frosting Here it is of my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake thickened it up a bit.  The frosting crusts every so slightly after left out and the rich creamy frosting locks in the moisture of the cake.

It’s AHmazing.

Peanut Butter Frosting

Try it on pancakes, waffles, muffins, cupcakes, cakes, breads, apples, apple crisp (yes really), dip chocolate bars into it, even celery sticks!

Seriously the most adaptable recipe ever.  Gotta love that!

    Exactly how we make ours except we use milk instead of water. It’s creamier and adds a little flavor. This is part of my entire family’s annual birthday cake, Spice Cake with Peanut Butter icing. Everyone always puts their nose up at it but once they taste it they are an instant convert. It is AWESOME. 🙂

        FYI… any recipe that calls for water I replace with milk!! Whether it’s for cooking or baking, it just enriches a recipe that much more ;-).
