By now you know I love cupcakes. Hell, I named my website after them, of course I love cupcakes. If you follow my Facebook page, you know that we are PCSing in a few very short weeks. I’m happy to be going to a new duty station, we’ve been at this one for 4 years (his entire first enlistment) and I’m excited to start a new chapter in our lifelong adventure. But I will miss making cupcakes for his shop, I’m hoping his new shop accepts my wonderful treats so I can get my baking addiction taken care of occasionally.
So I wanted to make one last batch for his shop, and tomorrow is their division Christmas potluck. Of course my husband immediately volunteered to bring cupcakes. He originally wanted me to make 5 or 6 batches, all different! I would have been able to do it but it wouldn’t have been very cost effective so I decided to just do a couple batches of one type. I’d been wanting to try this recipe out for months and since I’ve been having a chocolate and peanut butter craving, I figured these would be perfect! They are from the wonderful Brown Eyed Baker, I love her recipes and this one is no exception. Plus I got to use my new hot pink Kitchenaid mixer, so all in all it’s been a GREAT evening!
