Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"I've used this recipe for years and it's perfect every time," according to Chad Ross. "You can also substitute chocolate frosting and it is super rich."

"Super easy, super delicious," says Brent Beeler-Carlton. "My mom, who makes everything from scratch, was very skeptical when I suggested this for our annual Christmas candy making event, but after the first batch, she was a convert! I'm about to make a frosting run for our third and fourth batches!"

"So creamy and delicious," raves Allrecipes Allstar Christina. "I accidentally bought a can of regular cream cheese frosting instead of the whipped, but it worked out great. These taste just like the inside of a peanut butter cup."
