Hi everyone! I've been asked to make choclate peanut butter cupcakes for a wedding shower. I'd like to do something a little different then using chips. Could I use peanut butter instead of cream cheese using the technique in this recipe or would the peanut butter center disappear into the cake? Thanks for your help!

Chocolate cupcakes are filled with cream cheese filling, then a surprise is hidden inside. Great fun for a school party!

Thanks, Judy! Have as many as you'd like! I'm also making Marianne's sweet vanilla cupcakes - these two at the bride's request.

The 'middles' part of this works great for what you are suggesting. I had a tub of choc chip chunk cookie dough to use and layered it with the pb/conf sugar mix and topped with the choc chip dough as a bar. It was fantastic!

It doesn't disappear, if you plan on piping it, use less of the sugar, it is pretty stiff otherwise.

I also think that the peanut butter and poweder sugar would work great. I recently made carrot cake with a cream cheese center they were so good! I have been thinking of trying a chocolate peanut butter cupcake next. Sounds really good. Let us know how it turns out!

Cookies, cupcakes? You don't have to choose. These cupcakes have a hidden chocolate chip cookie dough center for the undecided among us.

I haven't made these but I have eaten them (yum!) and I bet chocolate cupcakes with frozen PB cookie dough would be fantastic.

Peanut butter and confectioner's sugar make a fluffy frosting that is perfect for brownies or chocolate cake.

Probably no help with this but I saved it this week. Just thinking about the peanut butter and chocolate makes me want this right now! Best of luck!
