Chocolate – Peanut Butter Cupcakes

12 Apr

pnut butter cupcakes This wonderfully delicious cupcake combines two of my favorites, chocolate and peanut butter! Who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter??!!  This cupcake looks beautiful and appears to be time-consuming, but it’s very easy. I made these for a friends daughters birthday and they just loved them. Whether you are making these cupcakes for yourself or someone else, they are sure to be enjoyed!

Ingredients:

1 box cake mix, Devil’s Food

1 C. Cold Milk

1 pkg. ( 4 serving size) Vanilla flavored instant pudding ( I prefer Jell-O brand)

1/2 C. smooth Peanut Butter

1 1/2 C. Cool Whip, thawed

4 squares Semi- Sweet Baking Chocolate ( I prefer Baker’s brand)

1/4 C Dry Roasted Peanuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake mix and bake in 24 paper-lined muffin cups, as directed on package. Cool only 30 minutes. (Cupcakes need to still be warm to fill.)

Pour milk into a medium bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with a wire whisk 2 minutes or until well blended. Add peanut butter; beat well. Spoon into a small freezer resealable plastic bag or pastry bag; seal bag. (If using a plastic bag, snip off one of the corners from bottom of bag.) Insert tip of bag into each cupcake; pipe in  about 1 Tablespoon of the filling.

Microwave whipped topping and chocolate in a small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 1 minute. Dip the top of each cupcake into glaze. Sprinkle evenly with peanuts. Store in refrigerator.

Makes 2 dozen cupcakes.
