Martha Stewart’s peanut butter frosting is good, but with some of my own additions, it is irresistable!! Sorry Martha 😉 Peanut Butter is a great fall flavor that is easy to incorporate into any chocolate dessert.
I used this frosting on a devils food cake cupcake (say that 3 times fast!). In all honesty though, this frosting would compliment a huge variety of cupcakes including, dark chocolate, vanilla, chocolate fudge, white cake, french vanilla, and banna nut.
