Chocolate Cupcake Surprise!

These past 2 weeks have been crazy here at 
Walking on Sunshine.

First I was deathly sick,
seriously I can be so dramatic sometimes,
then my GIRL came home and finally my mom's heart procedures this week.

I've had a hard time keeping up here and checking in with everyone.
One of my favorite things to do EVERY DAY is read blogs.
But when life gets crazy, the things we love to do get pushed to the bottom of the list.

BUT I promised myself I would get this DELICIOUS and EASY recipe posted 
for this week's Something Yummy for My Colonel's Tummy
that Olivia and I made this past Sunday.

Chocolate Cupcake Surprise...


The surprise is PEANUT BUTTER!
And who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter?
A perfect combination!

Ingredients:

1 box chocolate cake mix
Peanut butter

Prepare your cupcakes according to the cake mix directions
and fill each cupcake holder about halfway...


Add a spoonful of peanut butter to each cupcake...


Looks good...


Then cover the peanut butter with more of the cake mix,
filling each cup about 2/3 of the way...


Bake according to the package directions.

Doesn't that look DELICIOUS...


So YUMMY and so EASY!

Feel free to add icing, if you can wait
that long to eat them.  



Enjoy your day!

    I can't eat chocolate or peanut butter...but the cupcakes made me inspired to make coffee cupcakes with a caramel surprise in the middle. i will try that soon! Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Lois,

    You are amazing - such a simple idea that is wonderful! I know what I'm making for my mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law this week.
    My MIL had an accident on wednesday and was in the hospital overnight. She is home now and very sore but OK. She was at therapy on the treadmill and hit a wrong button and her feet went out from under her. She was hanging to the handlebars when this happened and pulled both arms out of their sockets - OUCH! They were able to restore the joints without surgery - Thank God. She has limited movement in her arms currently but this is susposed to fade and she will have normal arm usage fairly soon.
    She loves cupcakes and these will be a big hit.
    Thanks for posting!
