Chocolate Peanut Butter Combo = Always Delicious!

27 Dec

Really, when have you paired chocolate and peanut butter and it has not been delicious? Exactly, never. It’s always delicious! I can’t imagine it will take much to convince you make these. Who can turn down award winning combo of chocolate and peanut butter? And the cake? It’s rich in chocolate flavor, but incredibly light and fluffy. The frosting? Oooh, the frosting! It is amazeballs good. (Thanks, Perez Hilton for my new fav word!)

Ingredients–for cupcakes
-3/4 cup butter, softened
-1 2/3 cup sugar
-3 eggs
-1 tsp vanilla
-2 cups all-purpose flour
-2/3 cups cocoa powder
-1 1/4 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp baking powder
-1 1/3 cup water

Directions–for cupcakes
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 9-inch round cake pans or line cupcake tins with paper liners.
Combine butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and mix on high for 3 minutes. Stir together cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Add to the butter mixture alternately with the water, beating until well blended. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.

Ingredients–for frosting
-2 sticks butter, softened
-1 cup creamy peanut butter
-2 tbsp heavy cream
-1 tbsp vanilla
-pinch of salt
-1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Directions–for frosting
Beat the first five ingredients together until smooth and creamy. Slowly add the powdered sugar and continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

They taste like Funny Bones, only a million times better! Enjoy!
