Peanut Butter Frosting

I don't know about you, but I like love peanut butter.  Peanut butter with apples slices (I just got the nerve up to try that one with in the last year and it's now one of my favorite snacks!), peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, peanut butter and chocolate, and just plain old peanut butter.  I made some lovely chocolate cupcakes and was trying to figure out what kind of frosting to make when I found a bag of peanut butter cups hiding in the cupboard.  I know, I know.  If you find something, it had to have been lost, or at least forgotten about.  And how, exactly, does one forget about, or lose, an entire bag of peanut butter cups?  And how do 5 kids not find them and devour them in less time than one can blink?  It seems to be a mystery.  Mystery or not, this frosting was fantastic!  The perfect compliment to chocolate cupcake.  The kids love it.  The hubby loved it.  The kids friends even loved it.  But then, I can't think of a thing not to love.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons milk

Combine butter and peanut butter in a medium sized bowl and mix until smooth.  Add powdered sugar and mix until well combined.  Add vanilla and milk, 1 tablespoon at time, until desired consistency is reached.

Recipe from The Royal Cook - an original!
