    JamesDean'sGirl's Note:

    CALLING ALL CHOCOLATE AND PEANUT BUTTER FREAKS--I KNOW YOU'RE OUT THERE!!! These are yummy and are kind of like Drake's Funny Bones, especially if you glaze them with a thin chocolate glaze:) I still don't know which way is better to eat these--still slightly warm or chilled. Sometimes, when I REALLY can't make up my mind, I eat them both ways, on the same day!

      I made these cupcakes for my son, the peanut butter cup lover, for his birthday. They were so delicious but very, very rich! Definitely have plenty of cold milk ready when you eat these babies!
