Rated 5 out of 5 by Dolly111 from Fantastic recipe! I like peanut butter so I increased the PB to approx 1-1/4 cup peanut butter and it tasted great! I made it for a baby shower with a triple chocolate fudge cake and I have had numerous requests since then for this cake/frosting combo. My only tip would be to start with the recipe as written then adjust per your tastes (more pb, more or less milk to adjust consistency etc). Oh it also worked well with fondant, it was a pretty thick buttercream to spead on the cake but it was perfect because I actually don't like the taste of fondant and only use it for looks. This allowed guests to peel off the fondant and still eat a cake with lots of yummy pb frosting on it:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by stephintx from Just Perfect!! I have made this twice in the last 2 weeks since I found the recipe and it is absolutely easy to make, perfectly delicious and has a great consistency for frosting with a smooth finish. I topped it with a chocolate ganche, strawberries and Ferrero Rocher chocolates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by becky crocker from Big crowd pleaser. I used 1 stick butter, 1 cup skippy naturals, 2c sugar, 3Tb milk (maybe more for consistency) and it was perfect! So good with dark chocolate cupcakes...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Newbie Caker from I just whipped up a batch of this to ice a chocolate birthday cake. It went together just as the recipe above said it would and the taste is to die for! Just peanut buttery enough and not too overwhelmingly sweet. I did add a little more milk to it after my crumb coat was applied. Together with the chocolate cake, this should be amazing! First time I've made my own frosting and I'm so happy with the result!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grammy5 from Excellent Great recipe. Just made this for a family birthday cake and everyone loved it. I did as some suggested and added a bit of milk after each cup of confectioners sugar. My secret ingredient was using a local dairy whole chocolate milk about 6 Tablespoons and about 2 Tablespoons of hot water(something my pastry chef. trained daughter taught me). Can't wait to try it again. Very creamy and tasty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovemybabies from I love this icing soooo much it is easy to make and taste so delicious. I added a little more peanut butter than what the recipe calls for just because I love peanut butter. I have made this cake just as a regular dessert and for special occasions a friend at work asked for it on her Birthday cake.Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kholme1 from Loved this recipe. I first used in with some chocolate cup cakes that I made for work. I filled the cup cakes and then frosted. Everyone loved them. I also used it to fill a chocolate cake for my nephews birthday party. He likes peanut butter cups so I thought he'd like this. It was a big hit.
