Peanut Butter Frosting:

We are big peanut butter fans here! We spread it on pancakes, cookies and brownies, stir it into vanilla ice cream, and use it as a dip for apples, carrots and celery (just to name a few)!!!
For my brother's birthday, he requested chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. I found this recipe and could have eaten it by the spoonfuls, it was so good!!
I hope you try it out!! 

2/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
3-4 cups powder sugar
2-4 tblsp. milk

In a small mixing bowl, beat peanut butter and butter until smooth. Mix in vanilla. Add the powder sugar, one cup at a time, until you have mixed in 3 cups. The mixture will probably be chunky. Add the milk 1 tblsp. at a time, until you reach the consistancy that you want. If you add too much milk, add more powder sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, until it's where you want it.   

-This would be fabulous on chocolate chip cookies or spread over brownies!! Actually, it would be good as a dip for apples too! But if you don't have apples, just dip your spoon in it!!!
