Chocolate and Peanut Butter...

chocolate and peanut butter is there anything better together? ok, well maybe peanut butter and jelly, but i think that is a tough race. this is my tribute to everyone's favorite couple. a moist espresso milk chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting. not just any peanut butter frosting either. instead of a dense thick peanut butter frosting usually made with peanut butter, butter and sugar, this is light and airy with all the real peanut butter flavor you love without the addition of butter and sugar. now don't get me wrong i am not saying butter and sugar are bad things, in fact they are very close friends of mine, but peanut butter in itself is wonderful and using it as a base cut with a heavy whip cream makes it almost mousse like. the espresso added in the cupcake gives the chocolate a rich and deep flavor. just to tie it all together it is topped with a reese's peanut butter cup. fun to eat and completely delicious. a favorite of adults and kids alike.
