I made this frosting for mini banana cakes. I piped a healthy star of frosting on each tiny cake. Mmm...peanut butter chocolate

This recipe is to die for. I made it even more sinful by putting it over a dark chocolate, chocolate chip, pecan, salted caramel poke cake. YUM

Let me say OH MY!!!!!!!!!!! and I really mean it. Being a collector of fine recipes (and having the habit of printing first then trying) I now email the different recipes to myself to try first THEN print if we like it. Let me say this is being printed and saved to recipe disk incase I lose the printed copy. WONDERFUL.. Thank you so much for a great recipe. I give this an AA for the grade of the day

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.
