Peanut Butter Cupcakes

I bet you can’t eat just one of these peanut butter cupcakes!  If you like peanut butter and chocolate, you will love these yummy treats.  My grandson, Tater Tot, loves peanut butter and his Southern Nana loves making him cupcakes. Children of all ages and adults will love these cupcakes and always come back for more. A delicious treat for anytime.

1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter (you could use the one without the nuts but we think the nuts make these better)
1/2 cup honey or could use 3/4 cup sugar (I use the honey)
2 eggs
3/4 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1 cup milk (I use 2 percent)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2/3 cup chocolate chips
In a large bowl mix all ingredients together with a spoon. Fold in chocolate chips.  Fill paper baking cups 1/2 full.  Cook in preheated 350 degree oven for 18 to 20 minutes.    Makes about 18 small cupcakes or 16 large ones.
 
These cupcakes are good without the frosting but the frosting makes them even better!
 
 
PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE FROSTING
