This recipe is great!!! I used closer to a cup of peanut butter and it was the perfect amount for the chocolate cake I made! Everyone who had the cake raved about the frosting! Will definitely make this again!!!

Very creamy and great peanut butter flavor. I only used 3 cups of conf. sugar though. That was plenty sweet.

Easy & delicious. This frosting saved a batch of cupcakes that I wasn't excited about. I made it exactly as written. It was perfect consistency for spreading with my Wilton cupcake decorating set.

I needed to ice a 13 x 9 cake for a fire department BBQ and was craving peanut butter. I used 3/4 cup peanut butter, 3 full cups of sugar and maybe 2 T of milk. The icing spread beautifully and I had about 1/4-1/2 cup left over which I am saving to eat with a spoon. It's just right!
