Handsome Carver’s Flavoured Peanut Butter Chocolate Vanilla Cupcakes

Who doesn’t love peanut butter? I sure do! I am particularly in love with Handsome Carver’s Flavored Peanut Butter. One of the things I love about this line of peanut butter is that it’s made with 100% natural ingredients. I am not a fan of the synthetic stuff so I was happy when I discovered them.

Since I love to whip up new recipes I thought I would create a few new recipes using their flavoured butters. First on deck is their coffee & chocolate flavoured peanut butter. I thought a moist vanilla cupcake would pair well with the decadent taste of coffee, chocolate and peanut butter combined together. Who doesn’t love cake?!

THE CAKE
3 cups of flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons butter unsalted
1 1/2 cups of sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla
1 1/4 cups of milk


Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and then beat in eggs, milk, vanilla, and butter until smooth. Bake at 350 degrees for roughly 15 to 20 minutes.

THE ICING
2 cups of icing sugar
3 table spoons of evaporated milk
1/2 cups of butter
1 cup of Handsome Carver’s Coffee Chocolate Peanut Spread

I am feeling a little inspired by all things peanut butter so please come back for my next recipe using one of Handsome Carver’s Flavored Butters.

P.S. These cupcakes are sooo good! Just saying!
