Hello! For valentine's day i'm making my boyfriend chocolate cupcakes. I was going to put chocolate frosting on half of them, and then if it's possible, do the other half in peanut butter frosting. He LOVES peanut butter so i figured he might like that. :) can anyone suggest a great peanut butter frosting that goes well with chocolate cupcakes? Thank you!

I do a similar one--I would be sure to use unsweetened peanut butter (a natural one like Adams or whatnot) just so it isn't OVERLY sweet. And about a half teaspoon of salt really brings out the flavor, too. :) Have fun! Chocolate caramel cupcakes with peanut butter frosting are about the best thing in the world! :)

this is my all-time fav peanut butter frosting. it's possibly my favorite dessert thing period.

Honey Roasted Peanut Butter Frosting

* 1 cup powdered sugar
* 1 cup creamy honey roasted peanut butter (I don’t use anything except Peter Pan Honey Roasted, it’s the best tasting!)
* 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
* ¾ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
* 2 TBL whole milk

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip everything except the milk and peanuts together on medium-low until creamy and combined, scraping the bowl as you go along. Once well mixed, add the milk and beat on high speed until light and smooth.

This is my go-to peanut butter frosting recipe:

I believe I originally got it from the How to Eat a Cupcake blog, but I don't think it's the same as the one posted in the comment above me. I've used it on several different cupcakes and it never disappoints.
