My medical professional lately informed me that he thinks I am just a single of people folks that just acquire bodyweight when they are expecting. This would seem rather unfair. Granted, I obtained 50+ lbs with my initial two toddlers, but this time about, I’m exercising! Even nevertheless, I’m in my 2nd trimester and I’ve already obtained 15 lbs .. No excellent!
But, I can inform you what went incorrect with my previous pregnancies, no difficulty. When I was expecting with my son, I couldn’t get adequate of hot chocolate and inexperienced olives. I know it may sound a tiny icky, but have faith in me, the prosperous chocolatey goodness complimented the salty olives flawlessly. With my daughter, I experienced a complete other sweet/salty addiction: pb&j sandwiches with potato chips wedged in the middle! I would sit at my desk at lunchtime, hiding behind my laptop, swiftly devouring a few or 4 of people poor boys. And while a pb&j may be a basic children lunch foods, it is certainly not a low calories take care of. By the time you add the calories of the bread, peanut butter, and jelly, you happen to be already up to at minimum 300-400 energy! And when you include the salty, greasy goodness of a potato chip on leading of that, it gets a pregnancy bodyweight atomic bomb. Fortunately, I’ve managed to curb those cravings therefore far, but I couldn’t aid but feel of what a tasty cupcake a pb&j potato chip cupcake would be.
I could attack this cuppie a quantity of methods. I have imagined about a raspberry jelly cupcake, with peanut butter filling, peanut butter frosting, with jelly swirled on prime or even a peanut butter cupcake with raspberry jelly frosting. Nonetheless, I think the ultimate homage to this childhood favourite is a peanut butter cupcake, crammed with raspberry jelly, topped with peanut butter buttercream mousse, a dollop of raspberry jelly smack in the middle and rolled in deliciously salty potato chips. I actually really like the brown sugar foundation in this recipe. And the buttercream is folded with whipped cream to insert a tasty lightness. Lastly, the crunchy potato chips incorporate a textural distinction, as properly as the ideal salty observe. Get pleasure from!
Peanut Butter Cupcakes

two cups of brown sugar
one cup of peanut butter
½ cup of applesauce (basic flavored)
1 tsp vanilla
two ½ cups flour
one tsp baking soda
two tsp product of tartar
sprint of salt
1 ½ cup buttermilk
Conquer collectively the butter, brown sugar, peanut butter and applesauce until finally it because clean and blended. Include eggs one at a time and incorporate vanilla. In a individual bowl, mix flour, baking soda, product of tartar and salt. Alternating, incorporate the flour mixture and the buttermilk to the peanut butter/sugar combination. (This batter tastes like peanut butter cookies!). Peanut Butter Line at 350 for about twenty minutes. (I experienced to go away mine in 22 minutes simply because I have a really low-cost oven).
Peanut Butter Buttercream Mousse
Conquer a single adhere of butter and a single cup of peanut butter with each other until creamy. Incorporate one ½ cups of powdered sugar. In a independent bowl, defeat 1 cup of large cream until rigid peaks kind. Fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture.
Fill the cupcakes with your favourite jelly. I use Welch’s Red Raspberry Distribute. To fill, I put a star idea on a piping bag and jam it into the cupcake. I squeeze until finally I see the cupcake commence to burst and the jam just barely arrives out of the best of the cupcake. Frost with the Peanut Butter /buttercream mousse and roll the cupcakes in crushed potato chips. It’s critical to use really crunchy potato chips (like “kettle cooked” brands). Best with a dollop a lot more of jam.
