Peppermint Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Be prepared to swoon over this decadent Peppermint Buttercream Frosting. This may just be the best frosting I have ever tasted in my life and it literally goes great on everything!

Peppermint Buttercream Frosting

I have this thing against store-bought frosting. I mean, why ever go that route when making frosting in your own kitchen takes so little time and tastes sooo much better? I have fallen in love with many a frosting in my life, but this dear delicious Peppermint Buttercream Frosting ranks high. It is UNBELIEVABLY yummy and once you try it you'll want to smear it all over everything in your entire house, like chocolate cookies or chocolate cake or steak and lobster.

If you prefer cream cheese frosting over buttercream, not to fret! I have a Peppermint Cream Cheese Frosting for you, as well. Whichever you prefer, I beg you not to go store-bought.
