Peanut butter lovers, prepare for glory. If you love a Reese’s cup (and who doesn’t?) you will adore these cupcakes. They consist of a chocolate cupcake with a peanut butter filling. As if that’s not decadent enough, they are then smothered with a sweet peanut butter frosting and a drizzle of melted peanut butter. Finally they’re topped with a miniature Reese’s cup.
Here’s a preview of the final product. Drooling yet?
They turned out great- sinfully sweet and absolutely delicious. Thanks Jenine!!
The cupcake stand was a gift from my sister, isn’t it adorable? It’s like serving a bouquet of cupcakes.
My friend Jenine had a birthday recently, so I decided to make cupcakes. Jenine really loves lemon (you should see how many wedges she squeezes into her water) so I wanted to come up with a bright, citric, lemon-based cupcake for her. The result was these lemon lime cupcakes with a lemon curd filling and lemon frosting. HOLY LEMON!
Remember when I posted a recipe for the world’s greatest chocolate cake? Well, it just got an update- this time I used the same basic recipe to make Fudge Cake Truffles aka little bites of heaven.
Candy #2 for Melissa’s big V-day bash are called Caramel Pecan Clusters. They are very easy to make and quite tasty. I chose to use pecans because they are my favorite but you could easily substitute any other unsalted nut (cashews, walnuts, macadamia nuts, etc).
A friend of mine is throwing a Valentines party this Saturday and I offered to make and bring an assortment of homemade candies. I’m not sure what prompted me to do this since I have very little candy making experience but I figured I could come up with some tasty treats. My first idea was peanut butter balls. I have made them before (although only sloppy versions that never leave my house) and my boyfriend loves them. They’re pretty much homemade Reese’s so I’m banking on the fact that most people REALLY like Reese’s so they should like these too.
