Brownie Bites with fluffy peanut butter frosting

One word... HEAVEN! First of all, I LOVE brownies. Probably my choice of desert. But.. I also HATE IT when people call a cake a brownie.. brownies are CHEWY not cake! Anyways, these are super simple and actually just made from a box of brownie mix. The frosting though.. HEAVENLY! I had a bit left over and well.. I was sucking the left overs out of my icing bag, but don't tell. ;) I got this recipe from the same place as the cheddar biscuits. You might see alot from her blog on mine.
Brownie Bites with fluffly peanut butter frosting
from The Girl Who Ate Everything

Brownie Bites
1 boxed brownie mix (I think chocolate cupcakes would be yummy too)
1 cup Reeses Peanut Butter chips (optional)

Peanut Butter Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons milk, or as needed
2 cups confectioners' sugar

Make brownie mix according to package directions. Add peanut butter chips if desired. Pour into paper lined mini muffin pans filling each cup about 3/4 full. Bake 14-18 minutes at 350 degrees or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool.

Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get good and fluffy. Frost brownie bites with frosting. Pipe the frosting with a star tip if you are feeling fancy!
