This is absolutely hands down the best peanut butter frosting I've ever had. Paired with a delicious chocolate cake or cupcake and you have yourself an amazing cake combination that will wow anyone who's lucky enough to have the chance to eat it! I found this recipe on the Cake Central website and I have never been more in love with chocolate and peanut butter than I am now. I never realized how much just the right ingredients, frosting choice, and cake flavor combinations could make such a huge difference in my baking. I just don't think I can ever go back to store-bought frostings again!
