Best. Frosting. Ever.

MY REVIEW

Great Recipe. I used it on my Granddaughters Reese's peanut butter wedding cake. It was a total hit.

I put this frosting on top of brownies. It was absolutely delicious, but it was a bit too much frosting for a 9x13 pan; next time I won't use it all.

After I started making this, I realized I had run out of confectioners' sugar, so I made my own. Simply put granulated sugar in a blender, and blend for a few seconds! You will probably only need about 2/3 cup granulated sugar for each cup of powdered sugar.

To lessen the fat, I used Land O Lakes light stick butter & Jif Reduced Fat peanut butter. I also used 1% milk, & it turned out great. Everyone raved about it. Will definitely make again.
