Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

I tested out a recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes today for Kyle and Wesley's Engagement Party next weekend. I think they turned out pretty tasty, Hudson liked them that's for sure! They are very rich, but if you like chocolate and peanut butter then there's a pretty good chance you'll like them. I made chocolate cupcakes and filled them with a peanut butter filling by Martha Stewart. Then made a peanut butter cream cheese frosting for on top. To decorate them I chopped up Reese's peanut butter cups and sprinkled them on top of each one.

Hudson had fun helping me make the cupcakes. He placed all of the cupcake liners in the cupcake pans. Helped pour the measured ingredients into the bowls. Counted as I poured the batter into each liner. He frosted his own cupcake. And he had fun unwrapping all of the Reese's peanut butter cups.

Peanut Butter Filling:


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Mix all ingredients together in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on medium speed until smooth. Transfer filling to a disposable pastry bag until ready to use.

  1. So the recipe for the filling is provided how did you make the peanut butter frosting? Did you use Martha s Chocolate Cake recipe? Those look mouth watering. :)


I'd love to hear from you!
