Easy Valentines Day Cupcake Recipes

Oh. My. Goodness. My friend, Tammy, sent me a photo of a cupcake that looked kind of like this one, and I fell in love right away! With me being on a total cupcake kick lately, I knew I had to make them.

If you're looking for unique and Easy Valentines Day Cupcake Recipes, look no further!

I made the frosting using a basic buttercream recipe, and added two tablespoons creamy peanut butter. You can use whichever frosting recipe you'd like, just make sure it's not too light – it needs to be stiffer than regular frosting.
