This Peanut Butter Frosting tastes JUST like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Or one of those Reese's Peanut Butter Easter Eggs. After one taste of this addicting frosting, I just knew I had to involve "Reese's" in the name of the frosting.
This first time around I ended up with a pretty big batch. Enough to test it out on Devil's Food Cupcakes, Marble Cupcakes, and Brownies. I was very thankful I had neighbors, friends, and a whole football team to give my treats to. (I scaled down this recipe for you.)
Everyone gave this Reese's Peanut Butter Frosting two thumbs up. You don't need a lot of it to satisfy you. Like a Reese's, this frosting is rich. So be your own judge how thick you would like to spread it on your cupcakes, cake, or brownies.
I like to store my frosted cupcakes covered in the fridge, but then again we store our Reese's in the fridge too. Am I weird?
Grab a glass of cold milk to go along with it, and enjoy!
