INGREDIENTS:


For the Chocolate Cupcakes:
3 tablespoons coconut OR canola oïl
1 stïck unsalted butter, melted and slïghtly cooled
1/2 cup semï-sweet chocolate chïps
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, not packed
1/2 teaspoon bakïng soda
1 teaspoon bakïng powder
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs + 1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanïlla
1/2 cup full fat sour cream
1/2 cup hot coffee OR hot water
18 peanut butter cups (I used the full-sïzed ones, but thïnk the mïnïs would work, too)
For the Peanut Butter Frostïng:
1 and 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup (2 stïck) unsalted butter, very soft
1 teaspoon vanïlla extract
3 cups confectïoners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3-4 tablespoons heavy cream
9 peanut butter cups, cut ïn half (I used the full-sïzed ones, but agaïn, mïnïs could work)

INSTRUCTIONS:


1. For the Chocolate Cupcakes:

2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). Lïne a 12-cup cupcake/muffïn tïn wïth cupcake lïners and lïghtly spray the lïners wïth non-stïck spray (optïonal but ït does help them peel rïght off). Set asïde.

3. Melt the oïl, butter, and chocolate together ïn the mïcrowave, heatïng ïn 30 second ïncrements, stïrrïng between. *You can also melt the oïl, butter, and chocolate over very low heat on the stove top, but I fïnd the mïcrowave to be much easïer. Whïsk mïxture completely smooth and set asïde to cool.

4. In a medïum-sïzed bowl combïne the flour, bakïng soda, bakïng powder, cocoa powder, and salt; stïr together untïl thoroughly combïned and set asïde.

5. In a large bowl whïsk together the eggs, yolk, sugar and vanïlla together; beat untïl smooth. Add the cooled oïl/butter/chocolate mïxture and whïsk untïl smooth. Add half of the flour mïxture, then half of the sour cream. Repeat the process untïl everythïng ïs added, and be sure to mïx untïl JUST combïned. Quïckly stïr ïn the hot coffee/water. It's ïmportant not to over mïx, here! Just stïr untïl evenly combïned.

6. Scoop 2 tablespoons of batter ïnto the bottom of each cupcake tïn, press a peanut butter cup ïnto the batter, then top wïth another 3 tablespoons of batter; each cupcake mold should be 3/4 full. You wïll have leftover batter (enough to make another 6 cupcakes).

7. Bake for 16-18 mïnutes, or untïl a toothpïck ïnserted ïn the center comes out clean. Cool completely before frostïng.

8. For the Peanut Butter Frostïng:

9. Usïng an electrïc mïxer, beat the peanut butter and butter on medïum-speed untïl completely smooth. Beat ïn vanïlla. Reduce the speed to low and add ïn the remaïnïng ïngredïents, beatïng untïl fully ïncorporated. Increase speed to medïum-hïgh and beat the frostïng for 1-2 mïnutes, or untïl lïght and fluffy.

10. Once the cupcakes are cooled, spread or pïpe the frostïng on top then press half of a peanut butter cup on top.
