Back To School

So I had a little problem with my computer and it’s hard drive.  Long story short, I have lots to post on here.  I want to come back to all that.  Let’s start with back to school treats.

My kids started back to school today.  All three of them, all day long!  They deserved a home-baked treat.  They never agree on one treat but they do always agree on chocolate.  So I decided to make chocolate peanut butter cupcakes and top them with peanut butter buttercream and dip them in chocolate sprinkles.

To say these cupcakes are good is a total understatement.  These are melt-in-your-mouth yumminess.  While my son was enjoying his tonight, he noted there were chocolate chips in them and asked, “How did you not melt the chips?”  My daughters didn’t say a word while eating and that’s saying something ;-)!  These are best the day they are made but I’m pretty sure the leftovers will be eaten over the next few days.

Purple Purse

My daughter turned 6 recently and ordered up a purple purse cake. Her birthday cake of choice is chocolate. She wanted peanut butter icing but only if it could be purple. So I went to work.

Tinting peanut butter icing is easier than I thought it would be. I used chocolate icing for the writing. Chocolate twizzlers for the handles. I also made some chocolate roses for goodie bags. I used one for the clasp.

She was definitely happy with the outcome. I was pretty pleased as well.

Peanut Butter Fudge

This fudge is simple, creamy, and delicious.

Melts in your mouth but isn’t heavy. Not too sweet but is light for fudge. Enjoy!
