Peanut Butter Buckeye Cupcakes

Peanut Butter Buckeye Cupcakes

Extra dark chocolate cupcakes frosted with creamy peanut butter frosting and topped with melted dark chocolate.  What else would top these Peanut Butter Buckeye Cupcakes than a miniature peanut butter buckeye!  Peanut butter and chocolate lovers rejoice!

If you can believe it, I’ve only posted a couple of peanut butter desserts on this blog.  This will make magical number three.  Total blasphemy, right?  How can I call this a dessert blog and only have three peanut butter treats.  Just have patience my friends.  There is more coming…I promise!  With peanut butter on top!
