If you like Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, then you’ll love these.
Chocolate cuppin’ cakes, with creamy Peanut Butter buttercream frosting. *licks lips*
These are pretty awesome, I have to say. I was gonna top them with Reese’s minis or the small size ones, but I forgot to buy them. Oh well! They’re yummy enough to not need fanciful decorations and such.
I basically just made buttercream frosting, and stirred in a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter, I had a recipe for it (see below) but it called for more peanut butter than I had. Which was good, though, cuz I didn’t want them TOO peanut-ty. Taste overload is bad for me. I like it simple. I used the fabulous chocolate cupcake recipe from the previous post. Yum.
Jay is obessed with these because he loves chocolate/peanut butter almost as much as plain vanilla, if not more.
PEANUT BUTTER BUTTERCREAM
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 2-4 Tbsp. milk
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla
In large bowl, combine butter, peanut butter, sugar, salt, vanilla, and 2 Tbsp. milk. Mix well, adding more milk as needed to make a fluffy spreadable frosting.
