Peanut Butter Frosted Brownies

This frosting would be good on a cake too! I only made HALF of this recipe to frost my pan of brownies, and I am telling you, it is soooo GOOD! The frosting tastes similar to the insides of Reese's Pieces, so if you like those, you'll love this.

Make brownies from your favorite mix, cool completely. Frost with:

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk, or as needed

  • Cream the butter and peanut butter together till well-blended (and try to ignore the fact that you are about to eat all of that fatty buttery goodness). Add in the sugar gradually, mixing well. Finally, add in the milk. Mix just till blended and creamy. If you overmix, it may start to look grainy. Supposedly you can fix that by microwaving it for a couple seconds and then mixing it a bit more.

I saw this recipe and decided to try it immediately. (Literally two minutes later.) It was a big hit. Half the recipe did a thick layer of frosting on an 8x8 pan of brownies. Thanks Sara!
