INSTRUCTIONS | Peanut Butter Whipped Cream
In a large mixing bowl (preferably a stand mixer with the whisk attachment), beat the cream on high speed until it thickens and soft peaks form (when you pull the beaters straight up, peaks will form but fall over). Add the powdered sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla then continue beating on high speed until stiff peaks form (peaks will form but not fall over).
