Last night about 9:00 pm we had a hankerin for something sweet, we had nothing in the house! So we decided to make some chocolate cupcakes and we threw in some Reese Peanut Butter Chips into the mix! Yummy! It also let me try out my new silicone cupcake molds…they worked wonderfully!
1 1/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 to 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin pan with liners or use silicone cupcake molds. Mix together the dry ingredients and set aside. Then Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add eggs and beat well. then add in your vanilla and milk…add the dry ingredients and make sure you get it all mixed up good. Once you get it all mixed you can fold in your chips (Peanut Butter or Chocolate) if you plan to add them. Or frost them with your favorite frosting!!!
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean…..
Makes 16 to 20 cupcakes
