Peanut Butter Love Bombs!

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, and since I bought V-Day cupcake liners and sprinkles on clearance last year, I decided to put them to use. Last night, I made Peanut Butter Bombes (from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World). They're really Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Buttercream Frosting and Chocolate Ganache...but Isa calls them PB Bombes, so I will too.

I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose, and you couldn't tell at all! I was afraid they'd taste healthy, but they tasted as sinful as a cupcake should.

For the frosting, I used White Chocolate Wonderful Peanut Butter by Peanut Butter & Company (if you haven't tried this stuff yet, oh my god, you's like smooth, creamy crack...and it's vegan certified) in place of the regular stuff. It was sooooo good. I couldn't stop eating the frosting while I was icing the cupcakes this morning.

I made the cakes last night, but I waited until this morning to frost and make the ganache so I could bring them to work all freshly frosted. And let me tell ya, I should start frosting cupcakes every morning! As soon as my alarm went off this morning, my eyes popped open and I thought, "Yea! Cupcakes for breakfast!" I usually roll over and hit snooze a few times. But not today! And then, while I was icing, I noticed it was SNOWING outside (and by snow in Memphis, I mean tiny little microscopic white flakes that fall for about 15 minutes....but still, it's the most snow I've seen all year!).

Happy Valentine's Day!

Mmmmm I want to work where you work because your cupcakes look sooo sooo yummy! Happy Valentine's Day, girl!

Ok, here's how to add the link box to your blog: Open the internet and go to this site:

Scroll down to where it says "graphical links" and copy the entire code that's in the white box under the paw print image.

Now go to your blogger Dashboard page, and where it says "Manage Posts, Settings, Layout" click on "Layout". On the right, click on "Add a page element". Then click "add to blog" for "HTML/Java Script". Right-click to paste the code into the "Content" box. Then save your changes. If this doesn't work, let me know :o)
