Enjoy an enhanced form of an odd regional snack with these Cocoa-Cola Peanut Butter Cupcakes. Created by the celebrated blogger Heather Baird, from the gorgeous blog Sprinkle Bakes, these sweet stunners pay tribute to the eyebrow-raising southern ritual of tossing salted peanuts into a cold glass of Coke. Full of Southern flare and kitschy cuteness, these little cakes will melt your heart.

A native of the Southeastern United States, Baird grew up on this salty sweet indulgence, and her love for the simple snack is easy to understand. To emulate this creative taste, she whipped up a batch of dark and sticky cakes and topped them with a rich salted peanut butter frosting. She topped the whole decadent affair off with a smattering of sea salt, crushed peanuts and chocolate sprinkles.

Get an intoxicating taste of the south with these indulgent Cocoa-Cola Peanut Butter Cupcakes.
