Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Darkhunter

Goes with my Peanut Butter Cake, posted separately. Looked through all the posted Peanut Butter Cake recipes to make sure there was not a frosting like this. Could also be used to frost any cake, like chocolate cake! Enjoy.

Fantastic!!! I love the combo of cream cheese and peanut butter! I microwaved the chips at 30 sec intervals for 1.5 mins. I used about 2-2 1/2 cups of icing sugar. I added a bit too much milk, but that's ok! Topped a chocolate cake with it. Will be making this again for sure!
