The tops of these cupcakes looked just like brownies not your average cupcake here!
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups melted and slightly cooled unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon peanut butter extract
6 eggs room temp
1 bag of peanut butter cups chopped up
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
The How To
Preheat oven to 350degrees. Chop up your candy using a food processor or a knife. Set aside.
|They even had little faces....|
Melt your butter in the microwave and set aside to cool.
In a small bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt then set aside.
With the bowl of the stand up mixer combine the sugars and cooled butter and whisk together on low-medium speed until smooth.
Whisk in the vanilla and peanut butter extract. Switch to the paddle attachment and on medium speed add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
Turn the mixer to low speed and slowly add the flour mixture, beating until combined.
|Looking good but not done yet!!!|
Fill cupcake liners about two thirds full. Bake for 18-20mins rotating the pan half way through the bake time. Check the center of the cupcake with a toothpick-if it comes out mostly clean then they are done. Let cool in pan for 10mins then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
