Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes.

Posted on: February 3, 2010

Are you drooling yet? Because you should be! These are definitely not those cupcakes your Mom used to buy for your 5th birthday party.  These are decadent chocolate cupcakes with a peanut butter filling and a light peanut butter frosting.  These are wonderful! Here is the plate I took to my neighbors. (Pardon my messy frosting, I’m a cook not an artist LOL)

Ingredients:
Peanut Butter filling:
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons unsalted butter-softened
3/4 cup peanut butter

Cake:
1 2/3 cup flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 tablespoons unsalted butter-softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs

Frosting:
3 cups powdered sugar
8 oz cream cheese- at room temperature
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup Cool Whip- use the cool whip that comes in a tub

Preheat your oven to 350.  In a small bowl you are going to prepare the filling first.  Mix all the peanut butter filling ingredients together using an electric mixer.  Set Aside.  Next you are going to prepare the cake batter.  In a medium size mixing bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda. Set Aside.  In a large mixing bowl beat the sugar and butter until well combined.  Then add the eggs one at a time.  When this mixture is thoroughly combined add the sour cream, milk and vanilla extract.  Line your muffin pan with liners.  Fill each cup half as full as you normally would.  Going back to the filling we made in the beginning you need to pinch off a section about the size of a walnut.  Roll it into a ball and place it in the muffin pan on top of the cake batter. Top with the remaining batter and you are ready to place these in the oven.  Cook for 20-23 minutes.  Make sure to let them cool completely before frosting them or your frosting will melt. When your ready to prepare your frosting beat the powdered sugar, cream cheese, butter, peanut butter, and cool whip in a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer.  ENJOY!
