By now I think we all know that I am a frosting fan. I love to make the stuff and I really love to eat it! I mean that is the whole point of making a cake, isn't it? I feel like it is hard to go wrong with deliciously plain old buttercream, but sometimes you want to amp it up a bit, am I right? The super light and fluffy white chocolate buttercream is an excellent example.
I have been in a fall baking mood already. I know, it doesn't make sense when it is still in the 90s with something around a million percent humidity. But, I can't help it! So, I was baking some pumpkin spice cookie bars and knew I wanted something fun to go on top. Marshmallow buttercream seemed like just the right thing!
This frosting does taste like marshmallow and it has a little bit of that elasticity. It definitely fit the bill for this dessert!
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 7oz tub of marshmallow fluff
- In your mixer bowl, cream you butter until it is light and fluffy.
- Add in the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and marshmallow fluff. Mix on medium for about 2 minutes.
- Get ready to have your socks knocked off.
