    Pinspiration - Peanut Butter Cupcakes

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     kellyish's Pinterest-inspired cupcakes turned out looking almost better than the originals! She says she uses the site mostly for crafting and recipe ideas. You can follow along with more of her Pinterest projects on her blog.
    - rachel8, CNN iReport producer

    So here is the recipe that I pinned – http://www.thelittlekitchen.net/2011/05/20/peanut-butter-cup-cupcakes-food-blogger-bake-sale/ – but in her blog, Julie reveals that she adapted her recipe from http://www.mybakingaddiction.com/peanut-butter-cup-cupcakes/. I’m not sure who I should give credit to for the recipe so I’ll just give you both links.

     

    I mixed all the cake ingredients together per Julie’s instructions and the batter came together easily! And thick, I guess, because of the pudding mix. But VERY tasty! :)

     

    Next I whipped up the Peanut Butter Frosting. I took Julie’s advice and made a half batch of frosting. And oh my, this frosting is so pretty and fluffy. And delicious!

     

    Julie’s recipe called for the uber-miniature Reese’s for garnishing the tops, but I didn’t read the recipe all the way through and therefore didn’t buy any at the store. So instead I just cut one regular mini into four pieces.

     

    My family loved these and they were by far one of the best Pinterest recipes that I've made. I will definitely make them again! :)
