Since I (like most people) have precious little time to bake in the summer I started with a box of Duncan Hines Dark Choc Fudge cake mix made according to directions, but I added a single serving container of unsweetened applesauce to add moistness. This little tip works so well!
Here is the PB Buttercream recipe
|2 1/2 sticks butter, softened|
2/3 c. Crisco shortening
3 Tbs heavy cream
2 lbs powdered sugar (about 8 cups)
About 1/4 cup Reese's PB Ice Cream Topping a little at a time
|Cream together butter and shortening until smooth. Slowly add 2 T. topping and 3 tbs. heavy cream. Gradually add the powdered sugar and scrape down the bowl very well once it's all added. Slowly add topping a Tbs at a time until frosting reaches desired consistency.|
