We’re having a little party over here. Doing a little dance.
It’s our last day of school this year!
We’ve successfully completed kindergarten and the third grade. The boys and I were remembering all the wonderful new things we learned this year in American history, geography, math, grammar, reading and so much more. Praise God! It is by His grace alone that we’ve accomplished all that we do. Where He calls, He certainly equips.
In honor of our last day, we made a little homemade celebration. A special treat for all our hard work.
Be jealous. No don’t be jealous, I’m going to share the recipe with you and their super easy.
Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cupcakes
Mix up your favorite recipe or box of chocolate (in my opinion, dark chocolate is the way to go) cake. After you’ve mixed and divided the batter into cupcake tins, insert one unwrapped miniature Reese’s cup into the batter.
I spread a little batter over the top of the Reese’s before I baked them so that the chocolate wouldn’t be burned in the oven.
Bake as directed. Let the cupcakes cool and whip up some peanut butter buttercream. I used a box of powdered sugar, 1 stick of butter at room temperature, 1/4 cup of creamy peanut butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/4 cup of milk.
Spread frosting as desired and top with a miniature Reese’s. Voila.
If you think these are over the top, you’re right! So have a glass of milk ready to wash it down. But I can’t think of any better way to celebrate than with chocolate and peanut butter!
