If you’re not having a love affair with chocolate and peanut butter you’re probably miserable right now.
Thankfully I’m always here with recipes to drag you out of that tasteless downward spiral and
I happen to have quite a lot of experience with eating Reese’s flavored goodies, so don’t fret, you’re in good hands.
So sit back and relax while I tell you a mouth watering tale about some food.
WAIT STOP FREAK OUT IT’S TIME TO MAKE A REALLY SUPER IMPORTANT DECISION THAT COULD CHANGE THE LIVES OF MILLIONS:
Would you like your addiction in cake or cupcake form?
Don’t worry, I made both!
The deadly recipe:
2 sticks unsalted butter
4 oz. 100% cacao chocolate
4 oz. Bittersweet chocolate
½ tsp. salt
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a double boiler, remove from heat and let cool.
3. Whisk together the eggs, salt, sugars, and vanilla.
4. Add in the chocolate mixture.
5. Fold in the flour.
Cupcakes: Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Cake: Pour batter into 2 8-inch pans and bake for 30-40 minutes.
The choice is yours.
Either way, once the baked goods have cooled press mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups into the top and watch as they get melty and delicious.
But in one respect this blog is a dictatorship because the peanut butter frosting is not an option. It’s a government enforced bowl of wonderously delicious magic. So ha.
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 cup peanut butter (like with my vanilla I tend to be slightly heavy handed with the peanut butter)
5 tbsp. softened unsalted butter
¾ tsp. vanilla
¼ tsp. salt
⅓ cup heavy cream
Beat the sugar, butter and peanut butter together.
Add in the vanilla, salt, and heavy cream (slowly, kind of, I’m bad at doing things slowly, I lose my patience, especially when it’s only ⅓ of a cup, so ya know just do your best)
Now beat on medium/high speed for a five minutes until it is so fluffy you want to stick your whole face in it.
If no one is watching feel free to do just that.
But I didn’t tell you that.
SHEESH STOP JUDGING
Anywho, after you’re done not eating a bowlful of frosting, top your already tantzalizing goodies with M&M’s and more Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups just to complete the entire over-the-top shenanigans.
Live, laugh, love, bake,
