Make this peanut butter frosting (from the Joy of Cooking cookbook).
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
3 ozs. cold cream cheese
1 1/2 T. unsalted butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla

2 2/3 cup confectioners sugar, sifted
Beat peanut butter, cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and milk in a medium bowl just until blended. Add 1/3 of the confectioners sugar at a time and beat just until smooth and the desired consistency is reached. If the frosting is too stiff, add, but do not overbeat anotherr 1 to 2 T. cream or milk.
Frost the brownies. Chop salted peanuts and sprinkle them on top of the frosting. Cover and keep the brownies in the fridge until potluck time!
