  • 10 ounces cream cheese , at room temperature (295 grams)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter , at room temperature (115 grams)
  • 5 cups powdered sugar , sifted (500 grams)
  • cup creamy peanut butter (200 grams)


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth. With the mixture on low, slowly add the powdered sugar until incorporated. Mix in the peanut butter.
  • Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge to later use.


Note: For best results, do not use a natural peanut butter as the oil can separate out.
