At my cousin Grace's baby shower we HAD to have peanut butter and chocolate cupcakes (her favorite flavor combination). I didn't want to just make chocolate cupcakes with a peanut butter frosting....everyone does that. What I wanted was a peanut butter cake with chocolate frosting!
Sadly I found very few recipes and even fewer I had time to try. So when in doubt, SEMI HOMEMADE it is!!
They came out delicious. Dense but airy still. I mixed a couple tablespoons of peanut butter in a standard chocolate frosting. The pumpkin toppers are because the theme was "Welcome Little Pumpkin".
