Awful! I am not a fan of too sweet frostings, so I thought this would suit me. No way. First of all - omit the salt unless you are using unsalted peanut butter. It is also very thin and runny - no way would it stay on top of a cupcake. I ended up adding a total of 2 cups of confectioners sugar to get a better consistency (still was really not thick enough but I was afraid it was too sweet.) Next time (as if) I would definitely add the cream a few tbsp at a time. Not a winner.

I made this recipe because I love peanut butter. It just wasn't sweet enough for me. I used 2/3 cups confectioners' sugar. That made it mm-mm good and I used it on a chocolate cake. Yummy!

You might as well just put peanut butter on top of your cupcakes. This recipe was too strong, even for the peanut butter lovers in my life.

to ecampbell34, I think it specifies 2 days only if you were serving them to the Queen. Hee-hee. Otherwise, they can be kept till they're gone!
