Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes are a delicious treat! We here at Back Roads Living like a little Peanut Butter with our Chocolate! Oh, and we love Peanut Butter with Banana’s also! Yes we love Reese Cups but sometimes we just like a little change! Plus, Reese Cups don’t have the same texture as a baked cake or muffin! There are just so many ways to make cupcakes and muffins and we seem to find a new way really often. People are so creative and for the most part they turn out really good and tasty! Go ahead and give it a try!
