Peanut Butter Frosting

I can't believe it, my baby recently turned one. To celebrate we decided to have a family BBQ, so I needed lots of birthday cake, I decided to go with cupcakes. I bought a giant cupcake mold, so we had two giant cupcakes and lots of little ones.

(Please forgive the not so great pictures. We had lots of family over and I didn't have much time for picture taking.)
I made a few different kinds of cupcakes, but I think the favorite was the peanut butter frosting. It was smooth, creamy and went great with chocolate cupcakes topped with chopped up Reese's. So next time your baking up something chocolate you should definitely consider topping it with this peanut butter frosting. Trust me you won't regret it.

Peanut Butter Frosting
1 1/2 cups butter,softened (I used half butter half shortening, I like how it makes it a little bit thicker.)

1cup peanut butter

2 Tbsp vanilla

2 lbs powdered sugar

4-6 Tbsp milk

Cream the butter and peanut butter together until fluffy. Add in the powdered sugar and mix well. Add the vanilla, then the milk until the frosting reaches your desired consistency. Spread the frosting and Enjoy!
