Chocolate Peanut Butter Icing
1 heaping tablespoons of peanut butter
chocolate to taste
1 package of dark chocolate hot chocolate mix (optional)
Pour chocolate syrup into a small bowl, just enough to cover the bottom of the bowl. This will keep the peanut butter from sticking to the bottom of the bowl.
Add one heaping tablespoon of peanut butter.
Pour chocolate syrup over the peanut butter until completely covered.
Stir until the two are mixed.
If the icing isn't smooth, then add more syrup and stir until smooth.
Add the hot chocolate mix and a little more syrup and stir until smooth. The hot chocolate mix gives the icing a little more texture.
Once the icing is smooth, grab a spoon and eat.
When adding to cake or cupcakes, wait until the cake/cupcakes are cool before icing. However, if you want iced brownies, then this icing is great added while your brownies are still hot. It starts to melt into the top of your brownies, giving you three layers of heaven!
Pairs Well With
I love chocolate and peanut butter. I don't always want to run to the store for peanut butter cups every time I want some. I always have chocolate syrup and peanut butter on hand. This way I can just mix some up, either as icing or to just eat with a spoon.
