This is great with Aunt Helen's Chocolate Cake. The recipe calls for a cup of chocolate chips but I always throw the whole bag in! The recipe calls for chocolate chips but the peanut butter chips on that chocolate cake is divine!!! I have also used chocolate chips and white chocolate chips too, up to you. But if you like peanut butter frosting do the peanut butter chips, you won't be sorry. Remember to work fast, this frosting "sets up to fudge" very quickly.
