OUTSTANDING! Screwed up a brownie mix so it was more or less chocolate cake with peanut butter cups in it and wanted a peanut butter topping to cover my boo boo...what an awesome frosting!! I confess...putting some in a small bowl and hiding away with it sounds tempting!! Even the pickiest loved it!!

I made this last night to frost a chocolate cake. It was so good. I did have to add more milk because I 'dumped' the powdered sugar in all at once. I also added chopped peanuts on top after frosting. I will make this again, only next time I will keep some out, just to eat!
