I have chocolate buttercream in the freezer can I just mix in some peanut butter?? I would like the end result to be a chocolate peanut butter. Thanks!
Depending on the b'cream recipe *and* the PB used it could get grainy Try adding just a spoonfull at a time to see how it does. Another option would be to crumbcoat the cake w/PB before icing w/b'cream

Wow! Does this work? I mean, does the PB crust enough with chilling to stay in place while adding the BC? If it does this sounds awesome! You've made my day -- I never even thought of trying this but as much as I love PB I've got to try. Thanks for the heads up!
Kakeladi truly made a great suggestions on how to do it, but make sure that your buttercream is at room temp as well before doing so. I myself will definitely try what she said crumb coating the cake PB first...
But I do have this recipe as well that I've used a few times now and I wanted to share it with you guys as well...
Chocolate peanut butter frosting
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup milk (or more if needed)
3 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled
1 Mix powdered sugar and peanut butter in medium bowl.
2 Stir in vanilla, milk and chocolate.
3 Beat until smooth and spreadable (start with 1/4 cup of milk and add a bit more if you need to).
Hope that helps somehow as well
