Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes!!


I made these cupcakes for my husband's birthday.  I wanted to try yet another Peanut Butter Cupcake recipe.  This one was a hit with my cream-cheese-frosting-loving friends but not so much with my family (we don’t like cream cheese frosting in my house!) We still prefer the peanut butter chocolate swirl cupcakes. I really liked the cupcakes though, and would make them again with a peanut butter butter cream. :)  ~Janet
