I caught an old episode of Barefoot Contessa and just had to make her Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Icing. Results were good. I wish the cake was just a tad moister, but the frosting is smooth and delicious. Almost like peanut butter cookie dough. These aren’t overly sweet, so I really liked them! My son did too!
I made a couple of minor changes:
- Instead of brewed coffee, I used 1 teaspoon of espresso powder.
- I increased the powdered sugar in the frosting to 2 cups and added more heavy cream to compensate.
I was really lazy yesterday, so I piped the icing from a gallon-size freezer bag. Sadly, my brand new tip ended up in the disposal. RIP. Another trip to Big Plate? Yes, please.
