Tasty! I used this recipe to frost a yellow cake. DH and I really enjoyed the flavor combination. The consistency was different than other frosting recipes I've made. It was very smooth and kind of glossy. This recipe made enough to cover my 9x9 cake with a little to spare. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Pretty good. Peanut butter taste was more than I expected... thought it was going to be more chocolatey. Was very good, though.

This frosting was very good. I frosted my dtr's birthday cake with it, as she loves chocolate & peanut butter. I enjoyed the taste of the frosting, but did find the texture to be kind of greasy. I guess that shouldn't be a suprise with all of that peanut butter, but it certainly was a different consistency than most frostings I have tried. I tried adding some extra powdered sugar, which did cut the greasiness somewhat. But if you are a chocolate & p'butter fan, I would not let that stop you from trying this recipe, as the taste is really very good.
