Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Filled Cupcakes
Whoever invented these delicious, scrumptious cupcakes deserves a raise. Or a hug. Okay, so both.
Now that I’ve got that statement out of the way – let me begin to say how absolutely delicious these Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Filed Cupcakes are. I purchased these at Trader Joe’s after seeing them time and time again in the little tiny square bakery “corner”. I’m a peanut butter lover – but that is a peanut butter lover in desserts (candies, cakes, etc.) I’ve never been a peanut butter on a spoon type-a-gal. Anyway! These cupcakes are SUPER moist, deliciously chocolatey and are filled with an ooey gooey peanut butter filling. The cupcake is topped with a soft, fluffy dark chocolate frosting which as dark chocolate is, isn’t overly sweet so it makes the cupcake just perfect. Each bite is perfection and it’ll seriously satisfy any sweet tooth, sugary/peanut buttery craving you or someone in your household may be having.
My boyfriend was hooked – he too is a peanut butter enthusiast in desserts (although he’ll eat PB&J’s or incorporate PB into ice cream). These are certainly a two thumbs up dessert/snack. So if you’re in a chocolate peanut butter mood – I suggest you pick these up next time you venture into Trader Joe’s – you won’t be sorry!
They’re only 8 points plus a piece, which really isn’t bad considering the magnitude of how delicious these are!
I admit we love these so much ... these have been a repeat purchase from time to time.
