I don’t know what I am more excited over: A. This is my 100th post! or B. that I have officially made one of the creamiest, chocolate peanut butter frostings ever!
What makes this frosting so special? It uses Jif Whips Peanut butter and Chocolate flavor spread. I recently started seeing Jif Whips all over Instagram and I bought it immediately.
It is a chocolate-flavored peanut butter spread that is light and airy and pretty much the most addicting peanut butter I have ever tasted. You can literally see the air bubble holes whipped into this spread. So I made this frosting yesterday and knew I had to share it immediately. It is THAT good.
What I love about this frosting is that no flavor is too overpowering. It is a delicate balance of both chocolate and peanut butter. The addition of the butter helps create an even silkier frosting. I am going to keep this post short and sweet because you need to stop what you are doing, go buy some Jif Whips and make this frosting.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting
- Prep Time: 30 minutes
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: 4 Cups
A homemade peanut butter chocolate frosting
- 1 1/2 C Unsalted butter (3 sticks) at room temperature
- 1 C Jif Whips Peanut Butter Chocolate spread
- 3 C Confectioners sugar
- 1 tbsp Heavy whipped cream
- Allow butter to soften to room temperature but not so soft that it’s melting.
- Using the whisk attachment on your stand mixer, whip butter for 3-5 minutes on medium-high speed until butter starts to lighten in color. You can’t really over whip here, so don’t be too concerned.
- Add Jif Whips spread and continue to beat on medium-high speed until well combined.
- Slowly add confectionary sugar, one cup at a time; ensure sugar is well mixed before adding the next cup.
- Last, add heavy whipping cream and continue to beat on medium high speed for another few minutes until you reach desired consistency. The higher the speed you use to whip, the lighter the frosting becomes.

How can I make this slightly more chocolatey?
You could try adding cocoa powder.
I was given the task of making a Birthday cake for multiple friends and the request was peanut butter. I had no doubt in my mind about using one of the recipes from Beyond Frosting, and this one didn’t disappoint! It’s sweet, creamy and the perfect amount of peanut butter, I don’t want to share it with anyone! My husband described it as “unreal” and “the kind of frosting that make you want to skip dinner and head straight for dessert.”
This recipe is a keeper.
Howdy! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to
