Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sivula Chef

These cupcakes are just devine - I think chocolate and peanut butter are the combination of the heavens! It's from the April/May '07 Taste of Home magazine's cupcake contest. It was only a runner-up, but should've been a winner in my opinion.

Oh my....heaven on earth!!! Everyone loved them and asked for the recipe. The cupcakes were moist and delicious. Everyone loved the peanut butter surpise in the middle. Can't wait to make these again, Sivula Chef.
