Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanutbutter Frosting

The point of these is something quick that's exactly what you need when there's a cupcake emergency.  I made these last time I had a cupcake emergency and I'm blogging it so I can remember the next time I have a cupcake emergency.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanutbutter Frosting

All I do is whip up the chocolate cupcakes that are easy peasy, (first shared here):

No Fail Chocolate Cupcakes

1 egg
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup sour milk

Put in bowl in order given.  DO NOT stir until last item has been added.  Beat well. Divide into paper lined cupcake pans. Makes 18 cupcakes (I make 14 out of this recipe).   Bake at 350 until done (which I bake them for 20 minutes).  Let cool.

And then a peanut butter frosting

Peanut Butter Frosting (just made up by me):
1/2 stick of room temperature butter
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
Add desired amount of powdered sugar (~3 cups) and milk (a few splashes) to make it the consistency you're excited about.
