I was looking for a peanut butter frosting that wasn't the usual "combine peanut butter with butter and powdered sugar". I'm sure those work well, but adding butter to already fatty peanut butter just doesn't appeal to me. As I didn't want any unpleasant last minute surprises, I made a 1/4 of this recipe this evening to test it in preparation for tomorrow's chocolate birthday cake. It was stupendous. I used natural peanut butter (no sugar, no salt) and added half the amount of sugar indicated and it was still very sweet, perhaps because of the addition of corn syrup. I also added 1/4 tsp. salt since I was using unsalted PB. It reminded me of a Reeses peanut butter cup. I ended up eating most of my "sample" and now have to go for a run to burn off those calories! Thank you ColCadsMom!

The joy of my life are my 2 sons, born in Dec. 00 and Jan. 04. I am currently a stay at home mom and love to make homemade meals and treats for my family. I live in PA, but the rest of my family are in AL and GA, and my boys and I spend weeks at a time in the South. I enjoy traveling with my husband and 2 sons. I am an Auburn University Alumni and a HUGE Auburn Tigers fan...WAR EAGLE! From August until November, you know what I'll be doing on Saturdays...watching ANY NCAA game on TV. I am also a fan of NASCAR. I have only been to 2 tracks, Talladega several times and Dover once, but I hope to visit many more. Pocono is only an hour away, so maybe someday! Atlanta is another real possibility with family close by. My furbaby Wickett (a pekinese-poodle mix I had for almost 14 years) went to live at the Rainbow Bridge on April 4, 2007. He was literally my first born child! He will always be in my heart. We have a new dog now, Roxie, who is a Shih-tzu. I am an animal lover, and will always have a pet! <img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/222/511934835_9dc466e9a4_o.gif"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/RedWhiteBlue.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza">
