chocolate peanut butter cupcakesWednesday, March 06, 2013
So on Sunday the 24th I had a rare day of being a mama to just one of my kiddos. My 3 year old was at her Nanna's (great grandma) for the day leaving me with just my 8 month old. I definitely wanted to take advantage of this lighter responsibility so I thought I would do a little shopping and a little baking.
I very rarely get to shop for leisure (a very much missed past time) or get a chance to bake for that matter because the days I work it consumes the entire day being 10hr shifts; and the days I dont work I am out numbered 2-to-1 because the husband is at work. So due to the fact that I had some baking essentials to pick up I chose to shop at Wal-Mart. Yep that was my super special shopping trip.
Outside of my baking needs I did find a few things for the house and filled a photo order. Upon returning home with just 1 kiddo I got my bake on. Lets just say that before this day I never had a need nor believed in aprons, well it is now on my "need to pick one up list". I was a mess! But the result was truly scrumptous cupcakes. Holy cow they were good.
I found this recipe on a food blog I follow called Stick a Fork In It, the cupcakes were her Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes with a peanut butter cream cheese frosting and a peanut butter surprise in the middle. Ah-mazing! You can find the recipe here.
Here is a picture of the cupcakes I made. I couldn't quite get the same height as she did with the frosting but that didn't change the taste one bit ;)
