More About This Recipe

  • Chocolate and peanut butter swirl together to make these mini cupcakes extra delicious! Calling all of you chocolate and peanut butter lovers! You know who you are. You are those friends of mine who, whenever they hear those two magical words together, come RUNNING. Case in point: This past weekend, I got together with a bunch of girlfriends for our monthly book club. When I placed these Mini Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cupcakes on the table, everyone politely smiled and oohed and ahhed a bit over the cute “chocolate” cupcakes. But as soon as I told them that there were two layers of peanut butter layered inside, they all immediately disappeared. Every. Last. One. I advise you to let them cool after baking, but that requires lots of patience. I may have just immediately popped one delicious bite in my mouth. SO GOOD! Enjoy!
