Brownie Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

Hi guys! Here's part 2 of the Halloween Collab series with The Four Eyed Wonder. Today I'm going to share with you the recipe of Brownie Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting. Believe it or not, it was just last week when I found out that peanut butter and brownies go so well together. Where the hell have I been and why didn't I know that? You can never go wrong with that salty + sweet combo!


This recipe makes 12 cupcakes. Here's how you make them:

Brownie Cupcakes:
I got this recipe from Two Tiny Kitchens but instead of using a 9x9 inch pan, I used cupcake pans. 
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate syrup
- 1 cup flour

Combine butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Then add the eggs, vanilla, chocolate syrup and flour, and mix them together. Line your cupcake pans and pour the batter on each liner. Bake this at 350F for 30 minutes, or when a toothpick is inserted it should come out clean.

Frosting:
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 4 heaping spoons of creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 3 spoons milk (I used soy milk)
*spoon = regular dinner spoon

First make sure everything is at room temperature. You can use an electric mixer or you can just use a fork, which I did and it was fine. Add the powdered sugar and softened butter in a bowl and mix them together until it's smooth. Then add the peanut butter one spoon at a time. At this point the mixture will be sticky. Gradually add in the milk until everything is nice and creamy.

Then to frost the cupcakes, scoop out the mixture and place them in a piping bag or just use a spatula. Decorate your cupcakes with toppers and enjoy!



Look at these Witch Feet Toppers, they're so adorable! Allie of The Four Eyed Wonder made them from paper straw and black construction paper. Check out her tutorial on how to do it!


Try making the peanut butter frosting and let me know how it turns out for you. Stay tuned next week for another Fright Night Craft Project with Allie and Me!
