I say peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven, therefore this peanut butter chocolate stuffed vanilla cupcake is heaven in a cupcake, right? Do you love the combo as much as I do?
Here we are! My third post in partnership with Sweetarts is a super easy recipe for these delicious cupcakes in honor of University of Texas. Have you ever tried gummies on top of cupcakes? No? You should try it! It’s like a tiny prize!
So here is another idea for your tailgating because, seriously, who does’t like cupcakes? Especially if we are talking chocolate peanut butter chocolate stuffed vanilla cupcakes?
Let’s talk cupcakes: these peanut butter chocolate stuffed vanilla cupcakes are so moist and fluffy, yet it’s so easy to take a piece out and fill them with delicious peanut butter and chocolate filling, then frost the top with whipped cream! Yes, I said whipped cream because I’m not much of a butter cream girl (gasp). I know, it’s weird. I just didn’t grow up with it, you know. In Iran, we use whipped cream to decorate our cakes and cupcakes – and it’s really good!
One thing about cupcakes that is very important for me and I have to remind myself of every time is not to over-mix the batter. I know it’s so tempting to mix it completely, but don’t. This tip is also valid for muffins and pancakes. Baking is full of small tips and tricks – there’s still so much for even me to learn!
The peanut butter and chocolate combination is one of my favorites. I have used it a few times in my recipes including this peanut butter chocolate chunk skillet cookie and this banana peanut butter coco puff milkshake. Both were very well received by readers! What is your favorite peanut butter combo?
