Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting

by Vicky


This is a tasty frosting for the peanut butter lover!  Tastes great piled high on chocolate cupcakes.  It’s also a nice change from the typical Buttercream frosting.  If you need a quick, inexpensive homemade chocolate cupcake like the one pictured above, click here

LittleChefTip: Kids love decorating cupcakes. No decorating bag? No worries! Put frosting in a ziploc bag and cut off the corner for a makeshift piping bag.  Cut the hole as small or big as you like.
