SKIPPY® sent us two tubs of their yummy Peanut Butter: Extra Crunchy and Creamy. We love Peanut Butter cupcakes, funnily enough I can’t eat it out of the jar (unlike my husband). It is delicious in cupcakes and muffins. So, Hubby has been making Super Chunky toast, whilst I have been busy baking. This is my fun recipe with a surprise centre! Can you guess what is inside?

We love baking and styling these cupcakes up with an American theme, we celebrated Independence Day by eating lots of yummy American food. We love learning about American history too – how it broke away from the 13 Colonies into a 50 State Country like you see it today. You can look on the SKIPPY® website for more fun recipe ideas, there are things from savoury to sweet. Why not give one a try? What are your favourite Peanut Butter cupcakes with a surprise?


Did you guess the surprise centre was going to be jam? It is delicious and the kiddies love these too – great grab and go snacks with a bit of a sugar hit too. I would love to know your favourite recipe with SKIPPY® Peanut Butter in the comments below or on social media: @mummyconstant.
