This is an awesome recipe! I needed a quick frosting for my cake-like chocolate, chocolate chip brownies and this did the trick. It was quick, easy and delicious! My children gave me the "best mom ever" award and one of them is a picky eater, thanks for sharing this recipe! :-)

REVIEW: recipe rating
Very easy, even my 2 year old was able to make it. It was a little creamier than I would usually like, but worked pouring it onto a hot cake (melted into it a bit). Overall, very happy with it and will use again!

Very easy! Just the right amount of peanut butter. Not greasy at all, and very easy to spread and pipe.

COMMENT:
Can anyone tell me about how much frosting this makes. How many cups? I am making a chocolate flower pot cake using a 2qt oven save glass bowl and I was wondering if I needed to make extra batches or if 1 would be enough.

I made this frosting to put on peanut butter cookies for a little something extra and it was great!

REVIEW: recipe rating
This was really a great recipe. I was worried because I only had salted butter in the fridge but it still turned out just fine. I only added 1.5 cups of confect. sugar just to make it even creamier and combined all ingredients at room temperature. I will use this easy recipe again!

This recipe is awesome! My husband loves brownies and he thought the peanut butter icing was delicious. I mixed the butter, milk and peanut butter first. Then, I gradually added the sugar. The recipe was really easy to make.

Wonderful recipe! I just made over 3 dozen chocolate cupcakes with this icing for my daughter's birthday. Of course, I had to have one too, and the combination chocolate/peanut butter icing is a killer! Very easy to make and delicious! Highly recommend it to anyone who likes peanut butter!

REVIEW: recipe rating
Easy and yummy! I'm a beginner and even I couldn't mess this up. I used creamy, unsweetened peanut butter from Trader Joe's (roasted peanuts, nothing else) so my frosting wasn't grossly sweet. Just make sure the butter is room temperature--it's much easier to whip.
