Peanut Butter Overload!

I don't really like peanut butter.

There, I said it.

I am obsessed with really like the Earth Balance Creamy Coconut & Peanut Spread and Peanut Butter & Co.'s White Chocolate Wonderful, but regular peanut butter? Eh. Yet for some reason a few weekends ago I wanted to bake and I wanted to bake with peanut butter. I made cookies stuffed with so many good peanut buttery things, I knew they would be either really good, or really bad. And I made chocolate cupcakes, stuffed with said cookie dough and topped with a peanut butter buttercream.

The result: total epicness.



 



I've made these cupcakes once before last spring for the Share Our Strength Food Blogger Bake Sale! Only last time the cupcake was stuffed with a peanut butter cup instead of cookie dough. I prefer the cookie dough ;) I also try not to use mixes when baking, but you need a thicker batter to keep the cookie dough from sinking, and this doctored up cake mix is super thick and delicious. 



Everything was enjoyed by all. The cupcakes were thoroughly enjoyed by my coworkers. One even got me off the hook with an agent for losing his paperwork, and Graham took the cookies back with him to Texas. I'm never going to be the worlds biggest peanut butter fan, but if you are you must try these recipes!
