Peanut Butter Cup-cakes!
Who doesn't love Peanut Butter and Chocolate?! I made these Cupcakes for my friend's birthday, and boy were they a BIG HIT! They are a scrumptious Chocolate Cupcake topped with Creamy Peanut Butter Buttercream.
Creamy Peanut Butter Buttercream
1/2 Cup Vegetable Shortening
1/3 Cup Butter
3/4 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
4 Cups Sifted Confectioner's Sugar
5 Tablespoon's Milk
Thoroughly combine Vegetable Shortening and Butter. Once combined you can add Peanut Butter and Vanilla.
Next add Confectioner's Sugar 1 or 2 cups at a time. This is where things get a little messy for me. After i'm done with this I have sugar EVERYWHERE! And I always seem to be wearing black...hmmm.
After you've added all the sugar...your icing will be dry.
Whip in 5 Tablespoons of milk and your done!
If you want you can store it in the frig for up to 2 weeks! Just make sure you re whip it before you use it After your Chocolate Cupcakes cool...get your decorating bag and a 1M Tip...your ready to decorate! I find its easiest to stick your decorating bag in a tall glass and cuff it down the sides. It will now be so easy to fill the bag with icing!!!! Swirl your icing on top!
Aren't they adorable?! I topped them with little chocolate sprinkles...
...and little mini peanut butter cups!
