This is just like the frosting used on Texas sheet cakes except it has crunchy peanut butter in it, making it taste just like a Mr.Goodbar candy bar.

GREAT recipe! Really tasted like the candybar! Only suggestion is to avoid using it with cupcakes because once the second batch comes out the frosting has cooled and isn't very spreadable. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This did not turn out at all. It solidified very quickly and was not spreadable. I added some milk to thin the consistency but it did not help much. I suggest taking brownies out of the oven first and then making frosting. The brownies will still be hot when frosting is done. Read More

This is great - tastes just like peanut butter fudge. It doesn't however taste anywhere like a Mr. Goodbar. I thought it would have a more chocolate taste and was disappointed that it didn't. But still yummy. Read More

This was really good! I halved the recipe and it was plenty to ice a boxed chocolate bundt cake. I love it because these are ingredients I keep in my pantry. Didn't have any evaporated milk so I used regular and it turned out fine! Read More

This is a really good fast and easy frosting recipe especially if you don't have any powdered sugar. It does taste like a Mr. Goodbar which is one of my favorites. I used it to top chocolate cupcakes with crushed peanut butter cups and it worked out perfetly. Thank you for this delicious frosting recipe that will be a keeper in my house. Read More

I was looking for a simple recipe that didn't require powered sugar (b/c I never seem to have any on hand!) This was super easy to make... I actually didn't read the entire directions prior to making and didn't realize I was suppose to heat this! I just mixed all ingredients together and it turned out fine!! I also used smooth creamy butter instead... FYI this makes A LOT of icing I spread over brownies and had too much left over.... Read More
