Vegan Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting


I made these cupcakes for a vegan bride-to-be for her bridal shower this weekend. I planned to do a test run of these, and if I didn’t like them, she was getting normal egg-filled, buttercream-topped cupcakes. But. These are good. Really really good.
