~Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cupcakes~

Peanut butter butter cream topped chocolate cupcakes with a Reese's peanut butter cup in the middle (per my niece Cassie's request). She also wanted them "dog" themed with green cupcake liners, she even emailed me to make the order "official". Pretty cute! I made paw prints out of fondant using oval and round mini cookie cutters and dog bone mini cookie cutters and imprinted the bones with a "C" for Cassie. The frosting was amazing, however the peanut butter cup sank to the bottom in the oven and slightly burned...other than that they were good. I am not a fan of peanut butter and chocolate at all (odd I know) so I am going off the kid's opinions. I did try the frosting and it was delicious! Just a basic butter cream recipe I made and I added half a cup smooth peanut butter. I think she was happy with her order :)


  1. They were delicious! I liked them. I'm still drooling! I know you have a special way of making the next batch greater! I still dream of the frosting! Yum! And Cassie was SOOOO protective of her last few!!!!

  2. Thanks Sar! I had a blast making them.
