1 box graham crackers-- break apart into squares
1 c. white sugar
1 T. butter
1/2 c. cream
1 T. peanut butter--plain or chunky

Combine cream, sugar, and butter in saucepan. Bring slowly to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes, then remove from heat. Add a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter. Stir and beat until frosting is thick enough to drop by spoonfuls on the graham crackers. An electric hand mixer is handy for this; it can take a while by hand. But once the frosting gets to the right consistency, you'll have to work fast to spread it on the graham crackers before it hardens.

Cold cash is something no one can keep long enough to warm up.
