Description

These Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting are a deliciously sweet dessert for everyone to enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2-½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • ¾ cups Unsalted Butter
  • 1-½ cup White Sugar
  • 3  Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1-½ cup Milk, Any Kind (I Used 2%)
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • 1-½ cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 4 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 36 muffin tins with paper liners. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a small bowl, add chocolate chips and butter. Microwave on medium power for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or until chocolate chips are melted, stirring halfway through. Once melted, stir thoroughly to remove any lumps. Set aside.

In a large bowl, add sugar and melted chocolate. Beat with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer with fitted paddle attachment until combined. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, followed by vanilla extract. Beat in flour mixture until smooth, alternating with milk.

Spoon mixture 2/3 full into each muffin tin. Bake for 20–-22 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center of cupcake comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

To make the frosting, add butter and peanut butter to a large bowl. Cream for 3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Add heavy cream and vanilla extract, stirring to combine.

Pipe or spread onto cooled cupcakes and top with a mini peanut butter cup, if desired. Enjoy!
