1 teaspoon - baking powder
1/4 teaspoon - salt
1/2 cup - creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup - butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup - Florida Crystals® Organic Cane Sugar
1/2 cup - firmly packed Florida Crystals® Organic Brown Sugar
3 - eggs
1/3 cup - milk

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper baking cups.

In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In large bowl with mixer at medium speed, beat peanut butter, butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add milk and vanilla. Add dry ingredients; beat until well mixed. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups.

Bake 18-24 minutes or until toothpick in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Carefully remove cupcakes from pan; place on wire racks. Cool completely.

To Prepare Chocolate Buttercream Frosting:
Combine in a large bowl, with mixer at low speed, Organic Powdered Sugar and butter. Add Dutch processed unsweetened cocoa powder and milk. Beat at medium speed 1-2 minutes until creamy. If desired add more milk until frosting is spreading consistency. Reserve 1/4 cup frosting. Frost cupcakes with remaining frosting.

To make reindeer on each cupcake, insert 2 pretzels for antlers and 2 candy pieces for eyes. Dip 1 “any color” candy piece in reserved 1/4 cup frosting to cover; place on face for base of nose. Top with red candy piece to complete nose.

Makes 12 cupcakes.

I love the combination of the salty and the sweet! My husband is a peanut butter and chocolate fanatic. He will love these.
