Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe

After epic failing my first try at Peanut Butter Frosting the other day, I tried again only this time I was using my own recipe and brand name peanut butter (I think I'd taken Jif for granted before) so anyway, I came up with a pretty awesome recipe of my own, if I do say so myself... and I thought maybe some of you would like to have it. I hope you like it if you try it! And be sure to use brand name peanut butter!!


  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk


  1. Beat butter and peanut butter with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Add 1/2 cup confectioners sugar and beat again until creamy. stir. Add the other 1/2 cup confectioners sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until light and fluffy. Stir again then put on cake or brownies.

Earlier, Mikey came into the living room and said "Hey Chelsea, do you want to go to the skate park and take pictures of me?" I've been his photographer before so this wasn't too surprising. I agreed and we went, this was the best picture I got of him.

Sometimes I mess with the camera just for fun while he's planning the next picture, so here's a random shot.
It's my shadow... I guess that's kind of obvious though :-)
So yeah, I thought those were pretty interesting. Oh! I almost forgot about this one! Last night we went to see a movie and as we were walking we saw this sign. Someone posted a sticker over the "N" I thought it was funny.
Ta-ta for now!!
