This is a Starbucks mini peanut butter cupcake … and it was yummy! Honestly I had never much been tempted by these bitty things before, but Saturday night I met a couple cool writer chicks for hours of great chat and needed a little sugar energy with my coffee, so I figured hey why not try one? The chocolate cake was packed with flavor, the PB frosting thick and creamy with a rich little chunk of candy for a perfect finish.
This is the first pastry from Starbucks since the Holiday Gingerbread I can praise unreservedly. And at 180 calories per PB cupcake as opposed to 480 in the HG, nicely done!
