The first time I made Ina Garten's friend Kathleen's peanut butter frosting I was obsessed. I make it often now, but I always have lots left over! This recipe was created as a way to use up some of the remaining frosting, 'cause it's way too good to go to waste!

Oh Yum These are wonderful. Thanks for posting. Cathie aka cookiesnmore....
