A Spork in the Road

Velvety Peanut Butter Frosting

I made a chocolate cake from scratch today, and had a difficult time deciding what frosting to use on it. It occurred to me that I hadn’t developed a frosting recipe in a while, so here’s my new, favorite peanut butter frosting recipe. It’s velvety and not too sweet, plus I used the extra crunchy kind for texture. Give it a shot, and let me know what you think.
