This week is the “Week of the Dragoon” for the 2nd Cavalry Regiment here in Vilseck, Germany and tomorrow is Family Day. (Basically, my husbands unit is having a giant birthday party for itself before they go on pre-deployment leave.) I decided to donate cupcakes to the event to be sold at the 2/2 CR Cougar Foundation table. The Cougar Foundation is the non profit organization that supports the 2nd Squadron in 2 CR… an organization that I’m a member of.
I decided to make a cupcake that I knew everyone would love… chocolate peanut butter. But hmm… I’ve made that cupcake or cake a bazillion times. Uhmp…. I need to kick it up a notch and add some flair! So, I’ve put a pretzel crust on the bottom of the cupcake and topped it with a chocolate dipped pretzel and a drizzle of chocolate ganache. Om nom nom nom The perfect combination of sweet and salty – chocolatey and peanut buttery. YUM!
