I’ve had a few birthdays for favorite people lately, and those people happen to love peanut butter. My grandfather just turned 80 and his favorite candy is–you guessed it! Reese’s! For those of you that listen to The Promise radio, you probably already know that they call Theresa “Resa” not only because it is an abbreviation of her name but because of her affinity for Reese’s peanut butter anything! So, with the pressure of birthday parties to prepare for, I spent a little time in the kitchen and came up with a wonderful (at least according to a few of my taste testers) peanut butter frosting recipe that just happens to be delightful on a fudge brownie or anything else available.
For my grandpa’s surprise party I created a huge fudge brownie cake that was smeared with ganache and peanut butter frosting. I learned at the party that this rich dessert can be decadent, so I decided it would do well for mini fudge brownie cupcakes. I then proceeded to make them for my friends, Betsy and Theresa, and they were a hit at both parties.
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
