Prompt: Peanut Butter
“Michelle, stop. You have been fidgeting since I picked you up twenty minutes ago. What’s wrong?”
“Nothing is wrong per say. It’s just… we are going to be eating a lot of peanut butter sandwiches for the next little bit!”
Sean looked worriedly at his wife while stopped at the light.
“Why? What’s wrong? Did something happen at work?”
“No… nothing is wrong with my job” Michelle said slowly. “It’s just money might be a little tight for a bit.”
“Michelle” Sean said cautiously, “what did you do?”
“The Jimmy Choo’s were calling to me Sean, I had to buy them!”
I made these cupcakes last summer at my cottage. I really wanted something peanut buttery, but smothered in chocolate. I had limited supplies, and I couldn’t find what I wanted. So I used a basic peanut butter recipe and added in my own chocolate flair. I put half the batter into the liners, and then put some chocolate chips into the middle. I then added the rest of the batter. After they were baked I added some simple chocolate ganache, just more chocolate chips with some butter. They were perfect, exactly what I envisioned! I would recommend eating them that day, so the chocolate inside stays soft! Make sure you don’t over bake the cupcakes so it isn’t dried out, as some peanut butter desserts do.
