Description

Sweet peanut butter frosting broiled to toasty perfection.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Milk
  • ½ cups Creamy Peanut Butter
  • ½ cups Crisco

Preparation

1. Use an electric mixer to mix all four ingredients until baby-bottom smooth.
2. Let your cake/brownies cool, then spread it on (frosting is best with chocolate cake).
3. Broil in the oven for only a minute or two. I usually just keep a very close eye on it. It can go from nothing to burnt very quickly. If I had a little torch, I would use it.

ENJOY!

Oh my. This is quite yummy! I made a pan of brownies that turned out to be a little on the dry side, but I had already planned on topping the brownies with this frosting.

Needless to say, the frosting saved the brownies!

The top rack, in my oven, was about 6 inches from the broiler, which gave the frosting a little more time to brown. I also had a few pieces of foil ready to place on the hot spots, so the frosting wouldn’t burn in those spots before the rest reached the proper color.

I will make this again, using a chocolate cake recipe, for sure!

Thanks for sharing,
E.

Oh my word!!! This stuff is delicious! I love this recipe. It’s easy to make, fun to make and tastes wonderful! I served it to a group of 20 U.S. Marines and they went crazy for it! Thank you soooo much for sharing it with us. You made me look good!

I made a from scratch chocolate cake and did not have enough powdered sugar to make my regular “go to” icing for it. I got on Tasty Kitchen to see what I could make without powdered sugar and came across this. All I can say is, this is the best Peanut Butter frosting recipe, so easy to make, and tasted great even before putting it on the cake and broiling it! I agree, you have got to watch it, only takes a minute to bubble and brown so stay next to the oven with the door cracked and watch it closely. Thanks for a great recipe! Off to have a slice with a nice glass of milk…Mmmm!!
