Today is my birthday and birthdays call for yummy treats! I love peanut butter, I love chocolate, and when you put them together - bliss!
I made these beauties with this recipe - one box of mix gave me over 40 cupcakes! I just use my ice-cream scoop (or Pampered Chef Large Scoop) for uniformly sized cupcakes. Instead of chocolate chips, I took a bag of mini Reese's peanut butter cups and diced them up. Before I folded the peanut butter cups in, I tossed them lightly in flour to keep them from sinking in the batter while baking.
I could probably eat the cupcakes just by themselves, but to take them to that next level I decided to top them off with some peanut butter frosting! I made this frosting and then at the end added 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter.
Ohhh these are soo tasty!! Enjoy!
