A Swirl of Chocolate and Peanut Butter


After a crazy week of midterms and dance performances I am now strangely unoccupied. I also have an abundance of meal points. So I went to the campus grocer [groh-ser] not [groh-shur]…and bought an 8 point jar of organic peanut butter.


The batter for this cupcake was very thick. The only liquid it in was three eggs.


After a few trips back to my room for supplies, I finally got the chocolate prepared and dolloped on the cupckaes.


Then I used a makeshift toothpick (read: chopstick) to swirl the batter over the chocolate.dsc00599

17 minutes in the oven and the cupcakes rose into lovely marbled domes.


These cupcakes peel away from the liner very easily, but are a little bit on the dry side. Good with a glass of milk.
