Peanut Butter Iced Brownies

Some good friends of ours have had a rather "rotten" start to this new year, and I wanted to let them know I care and hopefully cheer them up a bit.  I decided to make brownies and top them with some peanut butter icing.  (I mean how can you go wrong with a chocolate peanut butter combination?) After the brownies were baked I cut them out with a heart cookie cutter and piped the peanut butter icing on them.  Here's the recipe for this soft and creamy icing....
Creamy Peanut Butter Icing
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons milk, or as needed
2 cups confectioners' sugar
Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable.  Frost your brownies/cake or whatever else you feel like trying this on! 
Pipe the frosting on with a star tip if you are feeling fancy!

These look wonderful! I'll have to try that icing sometime, since it's my husband's favorite with chocolate cake. :)
