Simple Peanut Butter Frosting

September is my Dad’s birthday month, he is no longer with us but I still like to celebrate his birthday with his favorite cake ~~ chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting.  It seems to be a favorite with the rest of the family too!

I often hear a lot of people comment on how difficult it is to make peanut butter frosting or they just can’t find a good recipe.

I think it’s quite easy.  It doesn’t have to be difficult, challenging or fancy.  Just peanut butter, butter, confectioners sugar and a little milk.

1 cup creamy peanut butter, although I do a heaping cup!

1/2 stick butter , softened to room temperature

4 cups confectioners sugar

6-7 T of milk

First I cream together the peanut butter and butter.  Then I alternate the confectioners sugar and milk, starting with the sugar.  The amount of milk also depends on the consistency that you prefer your frosting.

This recipe yields about 3 cups of frosting.

Happy Birthday Dad!! XOXO
