Peanut Butter Frosting

This is my favorite frosting for chocolate cake! I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. I just baked a 9 x 13 inch chocolate cake and frosted with the frosting. Nothing special I know, but you could really dress up the cake. You could make 2 round cakes and frost as usual. Drizzle a chocolate ganache over the top and let it drizzle over the sides. Then add chopped Reese's miniature peanut butter cups to the top.  Or use more icing to make round mounds of frosting around the edge of the cake and place whole Reese's miniature cups on top of each mound. You will have one fancy smancy cake. Sooooo delicious! Hubby even agrees!
