Ben's 25th (quarter of a century!!) birthday is on Saturday. We are leaving for Jamaica right after his birthday, so I decided to go ahead and make his bday cupcakes tonight so he has more time to enjoy them. I have been wanting to make these delicious little guys for a while now...and I sure am glad that I did! I made chocolate cupcakes with Ina Garten's (bleh) peanut butter icing. The "Barefoot Contessa" drives me crazy, but she knows how to make some icing!
Here is the recipe:
5 tbsp. of room temp. unsalted butter
1 cup cream peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. of vanilla
1/3 cup of heavy cream (next time I will try using my special "I'm-allergic-to-all-milk-products" whole milk)
Blend everything except the cream. When it is all mixed, whip in the cream until it gets fluffy.
I promise, this is SO good!!
