I didn’t come up with the menu. Remember that.
Warm sweet tea.
Pimento Cheese sandwiches.
Peanut Butter Chocolate cupcakes. (The real reason for this post)
This peanut butter icing is fantastic.
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
5 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup heavy cream
Mix confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, butter, vanilla and salt in the bowl (with a paddle attachment if you have one, I don’t so the egg beaters worked just fine) Mix until creamy and smooth. Add in the cream and beat on high speed until the mixture is light and smooth.
It’s that quick and simple. This goes great on any type of chocolate cupcake or the tip of your finger. Yum.
