Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

I made some delicious looking chocolate peanut butter cupcakes.
(I had no real reason, I just wanted to give it a shot!)

My cousin, Greyson, gave me this cupcake recipe book, and I love it.  I figured it was time to put it to use, so I found a recipe and tried it.

Everything is made from scratch (even the frosting!!) and if you know me, you know this is a rare thing for me.

They turned out pretty good - they were rich and chocolately, but super good with a glass of milk.
The recipe book and a lot of the ingredients.
Making the batter!
The frosting was so good - it had heavy whipping cream (yum)
Before the frosting - fresh out of the oven.
All finished!!
It was quite the accomplishment for me ;)

(If only I could do the same thing with healthy foods)

Next, I think I am going to try and make some festive Halloween cupcakes.

Hope you're having an amazing day!
