Hello,

So I found this recipe:

Peanut Butter & Honey Frosting
■1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
■1-8oz. package of cream cheese, room temperature
■1/2 of honey flavored peanut butter (creamy/smooth, not fresh ground)
■2 generous tbs of honey
■2 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
■honey (for drizzling)
■honey peanuts, coarsely chopped for garnish
1.Cream butter and cream cheese until light fluffy in a standing bowl mixer on low-medium speed for about 3 minutes.
2.Add the peanut butter until combined and then add honey to taste. (I used a little bit more than 2 tbs to get it where I wanted it)
3.Add the powdered sugar and combine on low speed until incorporated.
4.Pipe frosting with a large star tip, drizzle cupcakes with honey and then add a sprinkling of honey peanuts.
5.Enjoy for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a midnight snack

And I am dying to try it for my husband's birthday.... my question is on the peanut butter... it lists "1/2 of honey flavored peanut butter " so is that 1/2 cup?? I have no idea!

Can someone help me figure out this frosting... please and thanks in advance!!!

The blogger advised that the recipe source was Martha Stewart....

A quick search of Martha Stewart's site resulted in the original recipes:

Thanks, I didn't even think of doing that!

The martha stewart recipe is a little different than hers, although she tweaked it I think... I'll have to give that one a try... do you think it's an icing I can pipe? Like with a 1M tip? just doesn't seem like a lot of icing sugar?
