Peanut Butter Frosting.

Although I don't mention it often, I love peanut butter...especially with chocolate...especially Reeses Peanut Butter eggs.  I've only had one so far this season.  I can't control myself, so I went with an individual one so that I wouldn't be tempted with the rest of the bag.  I am hopeful that I get a full bag in my Easter basket though.

This frosting is amazing.  It is good on cupcakes, brownies, and the like.

Peanut Butter Frosting.
(Adapted from Brown Eyed Baker)

1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
4 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
dash of salt

Combine all ingredients and beat until combined and creamy!!

Again, this frosting is perfect for chocolate cupcakes and brownies.  Especially these brownies!!  And, really, the possibilities are endless.  Make a batch of frosting and see what happens!

Sounds like I will be making Brownies with this Frosting cuz I am certain there is no better combination!

Mom. You may recall your son licking the frosting off the cupcakes because the frosting was so good and the cupcakes so dry. Did he follow through on his plan that night?

No he didn't, I wouldn't let him...THAT would have been SICK even for Brent!
