    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.

    These had a wonderful peanut-butter flavor and just the right amount of chocolate to balance. The texture was a little dense, almost a cross of muffin and cake. We topped these with chocolate frosting. A big glass of cold milk is a must!! Made for 123 Tag.

    Wow, these cupcakes are amazing. They have such great peanut butter flavor - it actually sticks to the roof of your mouth just like when you eat peanut butter by itself. It is delicious and sure to be any peanut-butter lover's favorite cupcake. It does taste just like Reese's chocolate. The only thing is that mine were kind of flat on top - maybe my baking powder is out-of-date. They still tasted wonderful, though! I frosted them with "Recipe#89207", which made just the perfect amount for 12 cupcakes.
