Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

When it comes to chocolate and peanut butter, Sam is a man crazed. It’s easily his favourite dessert combination and he would happily have me only bake things in that flavour family. It makes sense that his favourite candy is Snickers. 
We had people round for a small anniversary dinner a few weeks ago and it was hard to keep Sam away from the cupcakes until our guests arrived. Sam is quoted as saying they were “Gorgeous. The best thing I’ve ever eaten.”

Preheat your oven to 350 F. Line your cupcake tins. In one bowl shift all the dry ingredients together (except the chocolate chunks). In another bowl, throughly mix together all of your wet ingredients. Then fold your wet ingredients into the dry ones. Stir until well combined and then fold in your chocolate chips.

Whilst the cupcakes are cooling make your peanut butter filling. Cream together the butter, sugar and peanut butter. Put it into a pipping bag and pipe about a teaspoon of the mixture into the center of each cupcake.
