  • 7Frosting:In small bowl with mixer at low speed, combine marshmallow creme, peanut butter and butter until blended. Increase speed to medium. Beat in confectioners' sugar, alternately with milk, adding just enough milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. Beat in vanilla.
  • 8TIPS: For a less gooey icing add additional powdered sugar
  • 9Frost copmpletely cooled cupcakes with PB marshmallow frosting and allow to set. (I popped mine in frig for a few minutes to cool up.) Then use additional fudge topping that has been refrigerated to decorate top of cakes. (i squeezed it thru the tip of a plastic baggie.)
