    caffeine junkie's Note:

    Cake, jelly, peanut butter, and chocolate... how can you go wrong with this combination? This makes a lot of frosting, but if the kids are helping, they might leave just enough for the cupcakes. I just double the cupcake recipe, or you could half the frosting recipe. The frosting is so good, my dad, who normally doesn't eat too much sweets, just wanted to eat it straight from the bowl! I tweaked it just a little, and it got even better! It's perfect... light, fluffy, peanut buttery goodness. If you like, you could use your favorite jam or jelly in place of the grape jelly.

      Another of my PAC 2006 picks. Wow, these were great! I have to be honest, I was a little worried about the cake part, because I usually prefer cake-mix cakes (sometimes from-scratch cake is heavy and dry). What a nice surprise! These were so good! I had some cake flour, so I subbed that for the all-purpose. I doubled the cupcake recipe (per recommendation) and got exactly 32 cupcakes (more kudos for this, since oftentimes my yield for cookies and cupcakes is not exactly as specified). I did find that I probably could have reduced the jelly by half a cup for a double recipe, but maybe I just didn't fill all the cupcakes enough. The frosting was also incredible -- so light and fluffy, unlike any peanut butter frosting I've tried before. I didn't know how I felt about chocolate with peanut butter and jelly, so I passed on the chocolate chips. For decoration, I just put a little squirt of the remaining grape jelly on top of each frosted cupcake (kinda like a cherry on top). You weren't kidding about the frosting recipe making so much, I still had about 3/4 cup left over after frosting the 32 cupcakes, and I even mounded the frosting on! Of course, seeing that it's a Food Network recipe, they probably intended the frosting to be piled on like bakery cupcakes (nice, but tough to transport without destruction). I will definitely be making these again (especially if my coworkers aka my favorite guinea pigs have anything to say about it). Thanks for posting!
