This frosting is amazing--it balances flavor against sweetness well, and the texture was perfect: creamy, fluffy, not oily at all. I followed the recipe EXACTLY as written, no alterations necessary. I made sure my butter was softened (not just room temperature) and I used Jiff's Creamy PB with No Added Sugar; the two whipped together beautifully in about a minute (and I just own a bottom-barrel Black & Decker hand-held mixer); then I added the powdered sugar a half-cup at a time, whipping as I went; I made sure to add in 1 Tbl milk between each sugar-addition so that I could judge moisture-spreadability ratio. It kept wonderfully fluffy and spreadable for the hour and a half that I used it, then put the remainder in the fridge. It does harden in the fridge, but gently microwaving it with a tablespoon or two or milk and then stirring returns it to its original malleability. I liked this recipe so well, I made an additional batch substituting Nutella for the peanut butter--it tasted incredible!
