Hello everyone,I hope all is well. Today I am posting this muffin recipe for all of those that love peanut butter cups. This is a good one for the kids and of coarse those kids at heart. I think these are good with chocolate frosting (or not). Have you ever forgot to buy more baking powder? You can substitute 1/2 tsp. of cream of tarter plus 1/4 tsp. of baking soda for 1 tsp. of baking powder. Until tomorrow.

Fill the paper muffin cups about 2/3 full. Push a peanut butter cup in center of the batter filled muffin cups until candy top edges are even with the batter.
