How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line two cupcake pans with paper liners.
  • To make the filling:
  • 1. Combine the confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, butter and vanilla extract in a bowl.
  • 2. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined.
  • 3.Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls (at least 24) and set aside on a baking sheet.
  • ***AFTER CUPCAKES ARE BAKED, NOT BEFORE*** (For cautious bakers that don't want their filling burned ;) )
  • 4. After cupcakes are finished baking and cooled, use a small knife and cut out the top of the cupcake. *Do Not cut off the top of the cupcake, just make a circle about half way through the cupcake to place the filling in. See Photo
  • 5. Place in the filling in the hole that was cut, then frost.
  • To make the cake batter:
  • 1. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl; whisk together and set aside.
  • 2. In a liquid measuring cup, stir together the sour cream, milk and vanilla extract.
  • 3. In a bowl, combine the butter and sugar, and beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • (Electric mixer is optional, or you can go old-fashioned with a whisk ;) If so, beat until light and fluffy - about 3-4 min. )
  • 4. Beat in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl as needed. With the mixer on low speed, (or slowly with a whisk) alternately add the dry ingredients and the sour cream mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix just until incorporated.
  • (Make sure you don't over-mix! (: )
  • 5. Spoon a tablespoon or two of batter into the bottom of each cupcake liner. Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then remove cupcakes from tray (if used) and let cool completely.
  • (If you're in a rush, place in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes or until cool. Make sure you check it often to see when it's cool enough to add frosting!)
  • To make the frosting:
  • 1. In a bowl with your whisk or electric mixer, combine the cream cheese, butter and peanut butter until creamy. (On a side note, when I first made this I found it super exciting to see how smooth the frosting was ;] )
  • 2. Slowly mix in the confectioners’ sugar, beating until smooth and well blended.
  • 3. Mix in the whipped topping until smooth and fluffy. Frost cooled cupcakes as desired.
  • Last, but not least, enjoy your creation and tell me what you think! (:
This is about the depth that you'd want for the cupcake. *Optional: Place the cut-outs of the cupcakes aside neatly. Then cut off the bottom of cut-outs and place on top to cover the filling (Like a jar.) Then frost,Add topping&Enjoy!   Close
