Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Filling

by arnold on July 7, 2008

I came upon the recipe for Double Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Filling at Food & Wine’s Web site while doing research for a cupcake contest I was planning on entering about a month ago. Eventually, laziness set in and I didn’t enter the contest, but these cupcakes were still on my mind. When our friends decided to have folks over this past holiday weekend, I thought it would be a good time to break out some cupcakes.


Glossy ganache tops this cupcake

I love the double-dipped ganache topping as opposed standard frosting. It’s much easier than making frosting, and the cupcake has a lower profile so it’s easier to eat. The peanut butter filling was really good too, but I ended up getting a little sick to my stomach after OD’ing on peanut butter while I was making it. :-)

Mmmm...peanut butter

Credit must be given to my wife for making these cupcakes look so good. I tasked her with doing the ganache and dipping the cupcakes. She’s really good at making things pretty.

I don’t know what it is about the photos you take, but they sure make me hungry. That close up of the inside of the brownie makes my mouth water. Well done!

Those cupcakes look amazing. It makes me want to get some bread and make peanut butter sandwiches.

I ate one and it was rich and tasty. A gallon of milk was required…it was that good.
