Milk Chocolate & Peanut Butter Swirl Frosting

by Courtney on April 25, 2011

Alright, so I promised ya’ll a couple recipes this weekend, didn’t I?

Well let’s start with what quite possibly is a new favorite frosting of mine…


Milk Chocolate & Peanut Butter Swirl Frosting.

Trust me. It tastes just as amazing as it sounds. I wouldn’t lie to you. Smile


I used it in conjunction with my usual Chocolate PB Cup cupcakes, but actually baked the cupcakes from scratch. Woah nelly!

Let’s just say there’s no turnin’ back now. Hubby even says it may be his favorite cupcake of mine to date.


*I used a large star tip for the cupcakes shown here.


I was a little nervous on how the decorating part would turn out, seeing as though I’d never tried swirling two frostings together. However, it was fairly easy once the frosting was actually in the bag.

And either way, it was totally worth the extra effort when I saw how cute they turned out.


Then again, maybe I’m just a little biased… Winking smile

I am so impressed! Those cupcakes looks amazing. Maybe I should look into buying a piping bag for myself. Have you ever written a piping tutorial? I’d love to see one from you.

And if you decide to open that bakery, I’d totally co-own with you :)
