These are OMG delicious! I actually got 16 very nice sized cupcakes out of the recipe. I frosted them with recipe #89207, 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.

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.
