A very quick and easy cupcake that tastes good too.I used crunchy peanut butter in mine,and a mixture of light and dark sugar (only as I didn't quite have enough light!).I definately think that they would benefit from the addition of some chocolate chips-I think they would be nigh on perfect then!! Thanks for posting Bev,we enjoyed them .Made for Newest Zaar.
