Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and baking powder; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk and coffee just until combined.
  2. Filled paper-lined muffin cups half full. Bake at 325° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. For filling, in a small bowl, beat peanut butter and butter until fluffy. Gradually add confectioners' sugar; beat until smooth. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert a small tip. Add filling. Push the tip through the bottom of paper liner to fill each cupcake.
  4. For ganache, place chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Cool for 10 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened.
  5. Place a heaping tablespoonful of ganache on top of each cupcake; spread toward the edges. Sprinkle with peanuts. Chill for 20 minutes or until set. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2 dozen.

MY REVIEW

The cupcakes have a nice combination of chocolate and peanutbutter which is always a favorite at our house.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2010

It was very satisfying but not overwhelming with chocolate, as always chocolate and peanut butter mix harmoniously together!

The water-based hot chocolate sounds like a great idea! I understand that the coffee is used to enhance the flavor of the chocolate. Unfortunately, even chocolate cannot hide the tase or smell of coffee for me. Nor can I abide having coffee in the house.

Thanks so much for your help. I really appreciate it.

 Hi Debbie.

In this recipe, the brewed coffe is used to enhance the chocolate flavor.

You could use water, instead.

Or, what about using a water-based hot chocolate?

Yum!
