Mix smooth peanut butter (softened, about 1/4 cup) with icing sugar (sifted, about 1/4 cup). Chill mixture, then shape into egg or ball shapes (about 8). Insert lollipop sticks into peanut butter eggs, chill again. Dip eggs into melted chocolate and chill until set. Then enjoy!

I was a little lazy this year for RSPCA Cupcake Day. Last year, I spent time decorating animal-themed cupcakes. This year, I quickly made these animal-themed cupcake toppers. I like the topper idea; expect to see more of those in the future. The cupcakes are peanut butter-flavoured with dark-chocolate ganache. Next time, I’ll do milk chocolate, as the dark was a little too rich.
This weekend, I spent time making these nine granny squares. Yes, another new project. This one will be a blanket edged in cream wool, inspired partly by this blanket. Granny squares are addictive. I have trouble stopping once I start.
Yesterday was Father’s Day here in the land down under and my dad requested some “nice” cupcakes. I chose to bake peanut butter cupcakes from the Cupcakes! book I received for Christmas from my mother-in-law. I can’t tell you how these cupcakes taste – I’m recovering from the flu and my sense of taste is still AWOL. Hubby says they are “awesome” and Auntie says they are “divine” so it looks like a thumbs up on these cupcakes. I’m hoping I will be able to taste one soon!
A note about this cookbook – there are very few pictures in it! Seems odd for a cupcake cookbook not to be filled to the brim with cupcakey imagery.
