Chocolate Bloghop: Fudgy Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

This month I have the fabulous privilege to be co-hosting Chocolate Bloghop.
This is my first time co-hosting and I am extremely excited to be part of amazing bloggers!
This past Christmas I received the book Small-Batch Baking by Debby Nakos.
I love this book! Especially because it makes no more than 4 servings!
Perfect treat for my husband and I!
It's simple and quick!
Nothing goes to waste!

I looked over many of the recipes in the book and decided to make Really Fudgy Cupcakes with Peanut butter frosting.
The recipe is super easy!
All you need is the following:
4 TBSP unsalted butter
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 oz bittersweet chocolate
1 TBSP of buttermilk
1/2 TSP of baking soda
2 egg yolks
1/2 pure vanilla extract
2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 TSP salt

For the frosting you need:
1/3 cup confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 TBSP of butter
1/4 TSP pure vanilla extract

(For exact directions please refer to Small-Batch Baking)
1.Preheat oven to 350
2. Mix all dry ingredients together
3. Mix all wet ingredients together
4. Slowly add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients
5. Once all is mixed together than spoon into 4 muffin liners evenly
6. Bake for approximately 18 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean

For the frosting:
Mix all ingredients until fluffy!
They came out super delicious! I can't wait to try more recipes from her book!
You should look into her books if you want to bake for two!
