Recently a friend was saddened when I attended an event and didn't bring any cupcakes. I am now known as the cupcake girl! I was very excited to be given this unofficial title. So last week my husband had a birthday. We had a party for him and, of course, I had to bake cupcakes! I wanted to try something a little different. One of my favorite cupcakes that I reviewed recently was the Peanut Butter from SusieCakes. Peanut butter and chocolate are just made to go together!
So peanut butter and chocolate were my inspiration for my birthday cupcakes. I used a devil's food chocolate cake mix. For the frosting I used milk chocolate, and then mixed about 3 Tablespoons of peanut butter. Last, I sprinkled large chunks of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups on top.
They were a success! I think that the crumbled Reese's were definitely the key to my cupcake success. I had to control myself by only eating one because I have my triathlon on Saturday. (I try to cut out sugar for the two weeks before my races.) But watch out after my race!
