We love baking with peanut butter, Easter is usually a celebration for baking in our house. This year we have been baking everyday since March 23rd and so we are finding fun recipes that we haven’t tried before. You may have seen our peanut butter and jam cupcake recipe, well this one is peanut butter and chocolate cupcakes. Yummy.
We are trying to use things up in the cupboards, instead of popping out to the shop for that odd item (which we would normally do). It has made us think very differently about what we are eating, cooking and what we actually need. We had a stock of peanut butter in the cupboards and this recipe is a great way of making tasty cupcakes and also, using up some of the Easter chocolate the kiddies get.
Americans love peanut butter and enjoy some of the most delicious peanut butter. SKIPPY® Peanut Butter is made only with high quality peanuts sourced from the USA, just one of the reasons the taste is so authentic! The main source of peanuts for other brands in the UK is China and Brazil.
