chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting
I have been craving peanut butter everything lately. I decided to incorporate peanut butter into a cupcake form. And what better way to do that than to combine two of the greatest flavors: chocolate and peanut butter? It’s absolutely magical and delicious.
Bake your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe and then make this frosting:
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons milk, or as needed
- 1 1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
- Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get good and fluffy.
