what you'll need


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup water boiling


  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter room temperature, 12 Tbsp
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tsp corn syrup

let's do it

  • To make the cupcakes, preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place cupcake liners in muffin tin, set aside.
  • Sift dry ingredients (first 6 ingredients) into medium mixing bowl then add oil, milk, eggs and vanilla and stir until completely incorporated.
  • Add boiling water and carefully mix until combined (batter will be thin). Fill baking cups ⅔ full and bake 12−15 minutes until centers are firm. Remove from oven, let cool completely
  • To make frosting, place butter, peanut butter, vanilla and salt in mixing bowl and beat on medium-low speed until combined. Reduce mixer to low speed and beat in powdered sugar. Add heavy cream and continue beating on low speed until completely combined.
  • Once cream is incorporated, turn mixer to high and whip until light and fluffy (3−4 minutes).
  • Generously pipe or spread frosting on each cupcake and place cupcakes in freezer to set frosting (15−20 minutes).
  • To make the glaze, chop or break chocolate into small pieces and place in medium bowl corn syrup.
  • Heat cream in microwave until boiling and immediately pour cream over chocolate. Let sit 30 seconds and stir chocolate slowly to combine.
  • Remove cupcakes from freezer and dip or spoon glaze over peanut butter frosting to coat. Let glaze to set 5−10 minutes then enjoy!
