Hi, I'm birdkitty. The recipe should say to store "left over" icing in the refridgerator. Let it come to room temperature before using again, or use a spoon to eat it when it's cold, taste like peanut butter fudge, yum!! Sorry for the mistake, getting older, you know. LOL!! Read More

This recipe was so amazing! I use it on top of my favorite brownie recipe. It tastes amazing! One problem- I tried to store my leftover icing in the fridge…but after 24 hours, it turned hard and crusty. I wasn't able to use the leftovers :( So, definitely make this icing and then use it right away. Other than that, this icing is PERFECT! I definitely recommend it!!!!!! Read More

I love this recipe! Delicious and easy! After following the directions, mine was the consistency of softset fudge, so I slowly added about 1/4c. more milk, and a dash of kosher salt. Read More

I liked this recipe, but ended up not using all the sugar and adding more peanut butter and milk to it. It was to sweet and didn't have the peanutty taste to it before adjusting. Read More

Considering that I completely forgot to put the butter in, it was still a big hit. Delicious and creamy, full of peanut butter taste and not overly sweet. I put it on some very dark chocolate brownies. Perfect! Read More
