These are OMG delicious! I actually got 16 very nice sized cupcakes out of the recipe. I frosted them with Kittencal's Chocolate Frosting/Icing, done with the medium chocolate version. I used smooth peanut butter as that is what I had on hand. Have a glass of cold milk ready when you eat these.
Mmmmm these were AWESOME! more like a soft brownie than a cupcake. Definitely will make these again....thanks!
These were absolutely delicious and disappeared in record time. My kids, who don't eat peanut butter, munched away quite happily without complaint. I added 100g of dark chocolate which I chopped into chunks as well for a truly decadent experience.
