Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, and since I bought V-Day cupcake liners and sprinkles on clearance last year, I decided to put them to use. Last night, I made Peanut Butter Bombes (from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World). They're really Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Buttercream Frosting and Chocolate Ganache...but Isa calls them PB Bombes, so I will too.
I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose, and you couldn't tell at all! I was afraid they'd taste healthy, but they tasted as sinful as a cupcake should.
For the frosting, I used White Chocolate Wonderful Peanut Butter by Peanut Butter & Company (if you haven't tried this stuff yet, oh my god, you must...it's like smooth, creamy crack...and it's vegan certified) in place of the regular stuff. It was sooooo good. I couldn't stop eating the frosting while I was icing the cupcakes this morning.
I made the cakes last night, but I waited until this morning to frost and make the ganache so I could bring them to work all freshly frosted. And let me tell ya, I should start frosting cupcakes every morning! As soon as my alarm went off this morning, my eyes popped open and I thought, "Yea! Cupcakes for breakfast!" I usually roll over and hit snooze a few times. But not today! And then, while I was icing, I noticed it was SNOWING outside (and by snow in Memphis, I mean tiny little microscopic white flakes that fall for about 15 minutes....but still, it's the most snow I've seen all year!).
Happy Valentine's Day!
