FROSTING:
Cook milk and sugar to soft ball stage; add vanilla; add peanut butter; stir to spreading consistency. Beat until it starts to lose its gloss.
If too thick, add a little milk 1 T. at a time. If too thin, add peanut butter.
Spread on cooled cake.
(this is a fudge type frosting and is as thick as the picture shows)
