Can you ever go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate together? One of the greatest combinations ever made. I am always trying to come up with new things that I know mike will love and I always know that anything I make with peanut butter and chocolate he will devour. And I was right, he LOVED these. I used this same frosting to frost a chocolate cake I made for his birthday, so I knew he’d love these just as much. I topped my favorite fudge brownies, the same ones I used here and here, with my absolute most favorite peanut butter frosting. I use this frosting for everything! Frosting cakes, cupcakes, etc. You will never ever need another peanut butter frosting recipe again, believe me! The brownies are so fudgey and so dense. It is the only brownie recipe I use!
The small amount of cream cheese in the frosting is only used for creaminess, you absolutely cannot taste it at all. It is packed with peanut butter flavor with a slight sweetness from the sugar which gives it just the amount that it needs. It is not overly sweet, it is the perfectly balanced. It is just so, so, so good!!! I always find myself eating half of it before it gets on my desserts, and I know you will too!
