Ironically, my blogging friend Just Us Girls posted a recipe for Peanut Butter Oreo Brownie Cupcakes. I was sold! I was going to make this for Father's Day!
I originally had the idea of a chocolate cupcake and because I'm always on the hunt for great chocolate cupcake recipes, off to Pinterest I went. I came across a handful of recipes that all included my key ingredients of chocolate, peanut butter and Oreos.
Original Recipe:The recipe that I based this dessert from was found over at Crazy For Crust, but I decided to make a few changes.
This recipe includes my 3 key ingredients plus a few more.
Our Changes:With a few changes, this is what our recipe looked like in the end:
Family Thoughts:Wow, did these cupcakes ever turn out well, but they sure are rich! The recipe ended up making 12 large sized cupcakes and 12 mini cupcakes (with no oreo in the bottom). I'm not sure the peanut butter spread on the oreo in the bottom of the cupcake was necessary. Next time, I will try to make some without and see how we like them!
The family devoured this dessert and we give it a two thumbs up!
