Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe:

If you use the icing like a “normal” person, you can frost 24 cupcakes, but if you put frosting on cupcakes like I do well, you will need to double the recipe. If for some strange reason you have some left over I am 100% sure you will have some little volunteers to help you finish it off.

Simple Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe by www.thebearfootbaker.comWhen I made these cupcakes for this post I delivered them to a few of the camp staff. They ate them faster than the speed of light. As a matter of fact, before they left on Friday afternoon, I made another batch to send home with some of them who are, believe it or not, in a barbershop quartet. They were watching some kind of barbershop quartet competition and wanted to share the cupcakes with the other members of the group. So what is a girl to do? Make another batch of cupcakes of course!You'll Love this Simple One Bowl Peanut Butter Frosting and So Will Your Family www.thebearfootbaker.comWell there you have it.
