Cupcake Madness: Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

31 Mar

{Singing} It’s peanut butter jelly time! It’s peanut butter jelly time! No baseball bat, only my third installment of delicious cupcakes in my March Madness Sweet Six Series.

I chose these cupcakes because who doesn’t like a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich?  When you’re hungry, PB&J’s hit the spot every time, and it’s because of this I wanted to make sure these cupcakes tasted just like the classic sandwich. I was a little worried that the peanut butter would make the cupcakes dry, but I was pleasantly surprised with the results. So was Jaime, a friend, and peanut butter connoisseur, who I commissioned to be my taste tester.  These cupcakes passed her test, and I hope they’ll pass yours.  Enjoy, after all, “IT’S PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!”
