Peanut butter and chocolate are a classic combination that most people can't get enough of. Since our friends C (the guitarist in SP's band) and his wife, T, were coming to dinner last night I decided to make Ina's Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Icing, especially after I found out C was a fanatic when it comes to chocolate and peanut butter.
I have to admit, this is the first time I've made cupcakes from scratch. They couldn't have been easier to make and were quite tasty, but SP made me leave them uncovered so the icing could harden a bit and I think that caused the cupcakes to dry out. They also weren't as chocolately as I would have liked, but they were still incredibly yummy. I especially liked the chopped salted peanuts on top. Yum!
