    A couple of weekends back my husband had some college buddies come visit. They of course know that I’m  a food blogger and wanted to know what I was making for them.

    I hadn’t intended on making anything because I assumed they would be out and about the entire time they were here, but in fact they wanted some sweets, specifically chocolate and peanut butter.

    My first thought was brownie bites. You know the ones you get at the store with cream cheese frosting, but instead making them with a whipped peanut butter frosting like the instead of a peanut butter cup.

    I made my brownie cupcakes full size instead of the mini two-bite ones. The whipped peanut butter frosting was so delicious that I stashed the extra in the back of fridge and just ate it with a spoon. Shhh… don’t tell!
