These cupcakes are RICH--taste testing it tonight, we each could only eat about half of a cupcake. You need to have plenty of milk on hand and a friend nearby to share your cupcake.
First I made the frosting base and filling. Mix creamy peanut butter with a little bit of jet puffed. A spoonful (or two or three) of sugar helps desserterize it too.
Here is the filling--peanut buttery yumminess!
I used Devil's Food mix, as chocolate and peanut butter go so well together--Reese's Peanut Butter Cup--need I say more?
A bag of peanut butter chips was added to the chocolate cake mix.
A delicious combination!
Here is the fun part--put a small spoonful of batter in the bottom, add a small spoonful of peanut butter filling and a very small dollop of jam (I used Raspberry). Then top the whole combo with another spoonful of batter (not shown). Cook according to package directions.
Here is the jelly I used. I loved raspberries with chocolate!
Take your leftover peanut butter filling mix and dump whipped chocolate frosting into it. Fold them together until mixed. Now you have your frosting done.
I drizzled melted chocolate over the top of the frosting and put a small drop of raspberry jam on the very top.
Peanut Butter and Jelly (and chocolate) cupcakes
As I said, they are RICH. Share with a friend and enjoy!
