Peanut Butter Icing

Dish: Icings & Frostings
Dish Type: Other
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 2
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 0

  • lb 1 - Powdered Sugar
  • tsp 1 - Vanilla
  • cup 1/2 - butter, softened
  • tbsp 3 - milk
  • cup 3/4 to 1 - peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)

This peanut butter icing is fantastic over brownies or a chocolate cake. One recipe is enough to cover 1 double-layer chocolate cake or 2 batches of brownies. For great results, try this over Ghirardelli double chocolate brownies. They're a big hit.

Mix all the ingredients above with a blender. Add milk and peanut butter as desired for consistency and taste. Spread evenly over brownies or chocolate cake.
