Chocolate Peanut Butter Mini Cupcakes

I fell in love with chocolate malted cake a while ago, so I played around with a recipe to come up with these Chocolate Peanut Butter Mini Cupcakes for ya! These little chocolate peanut butter cupcakes were perfect for the kiddos. The kids can help you in the kitchen to make these mini cupcakes. They are going to love them! … And so will you!

I made up a big tray of these to take to my daughter’s girl scout troupe. The girls in the troupe all did a great job this year with all of their badges and events. They are looking forward to their summer camp and bridging up to Juniors.

BTW – girl scout moms – What is up with not keeping your badges from Daisy’s to Brownies to Juniors? I’ve spent a small fortune on badges and pins and in the fall, she is starting off with a naked green vest. Her brown vest is so full of fun badges and now what do we do with them? Sigh… It’s kinda depressing to start over.

Anyway, I don’t think that the kids even care. They just love to see each other and have a great time learning new things at all the girl scout meetings. In the end, it’s all good. Besides, they don’t need no stinkin’ badges!

These cupcakes can be made in regular sized cupcakes if you so desire. I just love making mini ones for large groups. There are always so many desserts at big gatherings so, I think that mini is always better. Everyone can have a small bite of everything and not leave half a cupcake behind – which drives me up the wall! Who leaves half a cupcake behind?? My kid! That’s who. She’s all about the frosting and I don’t blame here. This easy peanut butter frosting is great on so many different cakes.
