and one of them---
|my brother in law, carl|
i made him this delicious cake (i know, right.........it's really crazy good)
it's chocolate (just a box mix) + peanut butter cream cheese frosting
i found a bunch of recipes for peanut butter frosting, but i've tried a few different ones and didn't really love them, so i put a little bit from all the recipes and made my own "perfect" version.
8 oz. cream cheese
1 stick butter (softened--tip: defrost for about 20 sec and no meltage!)
2 heaping T. of creamy peanut butter (not natural or anything fancy)
1 t. vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
1 T. milk
cream butter, cream cheese, and peanut butter together with a hand mixer. add vanilla and milk. add powdered sugar one cup at a time. i added crumbled reese's peanut butter cups to the middle and top of the cake as well.
