I'm figure there are lots of recipes like this one...but this is what I like to use.

It is wonderful used on Chocolate Cakes & Cupcakes.

P.S. I posted this one because of a request...from another JAP friend.

How to Make Cooked Peanut Butter Frosting...Cin's


  1. Combine the first 3-ingredients in a heavy saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil then cook for approx. 3 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and place saucepan into a larger pan that has cold water in it.
  4. Add the last 3-ingredients, and beat until mixture thickens to a consistency you can spread.
  5. Makes enough for a 2-layer cake.
  6. P.S. I have also cooked some bacon, pat off the grease and break into pieces, then add into this frosting...everything is better with bacon =;D
    This is for you Rose.
