chocolate + peanut butter = perfection

I'm definitely not a food stylist, but I had to include a picture to go along with the best.recipe.ever for peanut butter frosting!  Seriously, if you love peanut butter and chocolate together - and really, who doesn't? - you need to whip up a batch of chocolate cupcakes and top them with this fabulously easy and amazing tasting recipe.

I have been searching for a great peanut butter frosting for a while and have finally found the perfect one from the Barefoot Contessa. And wouldn't you know it, it is SO easy...especially if you have a Kitchen Aid mixer.  I actually had all of these ingredients on hand, too.

Okay enough chatting, here's the recipe...

Peanut Butter Frosting

**This makes enough to frost about 14 cupcakes.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature - BE SURE that the butter is at room temperature!
¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup heavy cream

Place the confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, butter, vanilla and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium-low speed until creamy, scraping down the bowl with a rubber spatula as you work. Add the cream and beat on high speed until the mixture is light and smooth.
