Mini Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Mini Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Mini or regular sized, these Peanut Butter Cupcakes are delicious at any size! And the frosting.. Well, let’s just say you are going to want to eat one of these for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

We really do love sweets for breakfast here at For The Love of Breakfast. There is nothing better than pairing up a great little cupcake with a nice hot cup of coffee for a sweet start to the day.

Don’t forget to let them cool completely before slathering with frosting as it never works well and you will end up with a runny topping and a sticky mess. We know it’s hard to wait before diving in but, in the long run, the wait is well worth it!

1/2 teaspoon salt
