Come and snatch a cupcake off my platter of freshly baked Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes! Sunday night is my favorite time of the week to get in the kitchen, cook a long family meal and maybe even a yummy dessert. And cupcakes are always a fun way to top off a fantastic weekend. These vegan cupcakes have fluffy chocolate cake and creamy peanut butter frosting. Spring flower cupcake holders add a cheery pop of color. Try these delightful chocolate peanut butter cupcakes on your next ‘in the kitchen’ moment. And the vegan ingredients are very simple to figure out if you are new to vegan baking!..
