chocolate-peanut-butter-cookie-dough-cupcakes Molly at CakeFYI is back with another insane dessert... chocolate peanut butter cookie dough cupcakes!! I'm dying because this is so up my alley!!!

In my household, the combination of chocolate and peanut butter is an absolute dessert staple. If you love it too, then you’ll definitely want to try these cupcakes!

This unique recipe starts with a simple chocolate cupcake batter, but by adding edible raw peanut butter cookie dough to the center, as well as more to the batter, you get something totally transformed. Plus I top them with peanut butter cookie dough frosting for just a tad more decadence!

  • 1/2 C Brown Sugar
  • 2/3 C Flour
  • 1/4 C Peanut Butter
