I have been craving Peanut butter cupcakes so bad!!!
I made my own recipe with things i already had in my pantry.
Also, with Valentine and the baby coming soon, i thought i would start on Valentine treats.
2 years ago, i made sweet snacks and treats for my hubby for 14 days before valentine.
Very fun and January is a great time to plan it.
You can see the posts here. 14 days of Valentine.
Hubby's Birthday is on the 13th.
So, there is Valentine Birthday party ideas, handmade cards and sweet quotes too.
The cupcakes taste like Nutty butter cookies (Yum!)
The icing is so yummy!!

Let your cupcakes cool completely.

Frenchy's chocolate frosting
1 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar, sifted,
1/2 cup very good coco powder, sifted,
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 stick butter (room temperature),
2 1/2 tablespoon water,
With mixer, beat all ingredients. I started a little bit with the fork and then, the mixer. (I have a hand mixer). If you have a standing mixer skip the fork.
Frost your cupcake,
Add some Wilton heart icing decorations.
