Lesson 94- Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes

The other day I was definitely in need of some cupcake therapy.  And the combination of peanut butter and chocolate sounded heavenly.

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp. baking soda
3 tbsp. baking cocoa
1 1/4 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
3 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line cupcake pans with paper liners. 
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Mix at low speed for 30 seconds while scraping bowl.  Mix at high speed for 3 minutes, scraping bowl every minute.

Spoon cupcake batter into liners until they are 1/2 to 2/3 full.  You should have enough batter for 24-36 cupcakes.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool 10 minutes in pans then move to wire rack to cool completely.

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons milk, or as needed
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar 
Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get good and fluffy. 

Then I put 3 chocolate chips on top for decoration.  

I enjoyed them thoroughly even though they almost put me in a sugar coma.  Husband however, didn't like them.  But...I took them to Bible study where there were enjoyed.  So, I'm gonna go with the majority on this one. 



  1. Wow... those look and sound delicious!

  2. These look like a reece in a cupcake! Yum!

  3. They're great for anyone who thinks the chocolate/peanut butter combo is a small gift from God. I know I sure do!
