Ina’s Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

Just wanted to wish my sister in law Jamie a very Happy Birthday today!

Ina’s Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

The family is getting together today to celebrate and meet a new addition to our growing family…baby Brady is the 2nd great grandchild and one of 16 cousins – Welcome to the family Baby Brady!!  It also happens to be Jamie’s birthday (as well as Brady’s parent’s 5th anniversary!  Big congrats!) and since I know how much she loves PB and Chocolate (something we have in common!) I wanted to surprise her with some of these cupcakes!  I’ve been eying them in Ina’s Barefoot Contessa at Home cookbook for sometime now and this was the perfect occasion for them.  Unfortunately I am not making it to the family get together, but have sent the cupcakes up with the husband and kids!  And I forgot to leave one home for myself!!  I did get to taste a piece of cupcake and frosting separately and that was really really good…can’t imagine what I’m missing not having an entire cupcake to enjoy all to myself with a glass of milk!  Maybe Jamie will let us all know if they are as delicious as they look…

Here is a copy of the recipe on Food Network’s site!

  1. Happy Birthday Jamie! These cupcakes look yummy!

  2. Aggie,
    Thank you for the birthday wishes (even though I stopped counting years ago) and a HUGE thank you for these fantastic cupcakes. I ate (we all did) one and they are so rich and chocolatey. The peanut butter frosting was to die for. We all loved them and we had a wonderful family get together. We missed you but thanks for sending the pasta salad and bacon-wrapped smokies. It was great to have the “Aggie” touch at the party. Everything was a huge hit!

  3. Great looking cupcakes. I’m of the less is more crowd when it comes to frosting on cupcakes, so yours looks perfect!

  4. Aggie,
    Everyone loved the cupcakes! Your new blog looks awesome…

  5. So sweet of you, Aggie! and the smart thing to do with baking- give it away!
    I love this frosting, definitely a keeper. I haven’t tried the cupcakes yet though- they look perfect!
