It's a week into 2010 and I'm making my first round of cupcakes for the new year! I've been brainstorming what my "signature" cupcake could possibly be and it dawned on my that DUH! Peanut Butter and Chocolate! My favorite food combination.
For this Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcake, I started with my recipe for super moist chocolate cupcakes and tweaked it just a little bit and they came out perfectly. I have a feeling that this recipe might become a part of whatever my signature cupcake is. I've got it pretty much perfected.
To top the cupcake, I wanted a peanut butter buttercream and this particular recipe came from Mermaid Sweets. I did my thing, adapted it some and I think it came out pretty good... a bit sweeter than I had wanted, but it's still pretty damn delicious!
Finally, I quartered mini Reese's peanut butter cups to garnish the top. They look like HEAVEN to me! But... seeing that it's 2:30am, I should probably wait until tomorrow to try one. Otherwise, I'll be up ALL NIGHT. hehe
