Peanut Butter Frosting

How cute are these?  I had to review Roundabout cupcake sleeves on my other blog, and they sent me these burger ones.  I made chocolate cupcakes, and needed a brownish frosting, so I went online in search of a recipe.   Most of the recipes I found were very similar, so I just kind of used my own judgment and came up with this recipe that worked pretty well.
1/2 stick butter, room temp
1 cup creamy peanut butter (I found a whipped peanut butter in the store that I used, and it worked great)
1/3 cup milk
3 cups powdered sugar

First, I creamed the butter and peanut butter.  I then added 2 cups of the sugar and the milk, while still creaming.  I added one more cup of sugar, and that was it.  Next time, I might add a little more peanut butter, because the sugar kind of muted the taste, but aside from that, it was really good.

I saw these on your other blog too...they look great! So funny :) My 5 year old said he wants some. I think it's the only way he'd eat a hamburger lol!
