Peanut Butter Frosting

As I have told you all before, anything made with peanut butter is usually a winner in this house.  I've heard of peanut butter frosting many times before, but never made it.  When I found a chocolate cake recipe that had been declared, "the best ever," I knew I was going to match it with this peanut butter frosting. 

This recipe is easy, fast and delicious.  The salty flavor of the peanut butter pairs really well with any sweet cake or cookie.  Not to mention it is fast and easy to prepare.

Peanut Butter Frosting
Recipe Source: The Sister's Cafe

1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
5 Tb butter at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup milk

Combine all ingredients but milk in a bowl of electric mixer. Mix on med-low until creamy; scraping down sides occasionally. Add milk gradually with mixer in high speed until frosting is smooth and desired consistency. But don't beat too long or else the butter and peanut butter will seperate.  Frost your cake or cupcakes then refrigerate to keep all the ingredients from melting.
