chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting

Ah, just the thought of these cupcakes make my mouth water! Moist chocolate cupcakes, with creamy peanut butter frosting! They are always a hit when I make them, so I decided to share them with you!

I found the recipes here: {   } and  {   }

Ingredients

These are all the ingredients for both the cupcakes and the frosting. The recipe called for “flour” so I used all-purpose.

1. First wisk all of your dry ingredients together.

2. Add in your wet ingredients and mix until smooth…

3. Pour into your cupcake holders.

4. Place in the oven for 25 minutes…

5. While the cupcakes are cooking, you can start your frosting. Cream together the butter and the peanut butter.

6. Once you add in your confectioners sugar it will be VERY thick. That’s why I prefer my Kitchen Aid mixer for this one!

7. Add in your milk. The recipe calls for 6 tbs, but I add a bit more.

8. By now the cupcakes should be done, so take them out of the pan and place them on cooling racks to speed up the process.

9. Last but not least, frost your cupcakes!

5 little things of life that i enjoy

Through the years I have found that the little things in life are the ones that mean the most… So for my first post I decided to put together five of the little things that I enjoy!

  1. Sunsets IMG_1133.JPG

I mean really,  just look at how gorgeous this is!

2. Outdoors

So yeah this kinda goes with the sunset one, but being outside is just so refreshing! Often we get stuck inside and caught up with the cares of school or work, but stepping outside, even for just a few minutes, can bring everything back into perspective.

3. PUPPIES!

Though my dog Hazel mayyyy be slightly annoyed at how much I love her, I’m sure she doesn’t really mind it😉

4. Time with God

One of my favorite parts of the day. I like this to be the last thing I do before going to sleep.  It helps me to wind down the day, and shift my focus back to what’s really important.

If you are looking for a good devotional, I highly recommend Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young. They take about five minutes, include scripture, and they are highly encouraging.

5. Porch Swings

Like any true southern girl, you know I love a good porch swing. I am so grateful that my grandparents have kept the old tradition of sitting on the front porch and visitin’.

So there are my five little things of life that I enjoy!

I hope that you enjoyed this!
