SNOWY WHITE TOPPED CHOCOLATE CHIP SUPRISE CUPCAKE WITH PEANUT BUTTER FILLING & LUSCIOUS WHITE GANANCHE or MAYBE I SHOULD CALL THESE FUDGY BROWNIE KIND CUPPY WITH A PEANUT BUTTER FILLING OR BETTER STILL HOW ABOUT RICHIE RICH PEANUT BUTTER BROWNIE CUPCAKES.Oh i cant decide
dark /milk choco cupcakes with white choco-chips& white chocolate ganache
Having never worked with peanut butter in a cuppy cake before ,little did i know that chocolate cuppys with peanut butter are a classic...
i can already taste the flavours developing,chocolate cupcakes witha good addition of white choco chips(callets here) for the 'suprise' part ,filled in with a piping bag with a delicious peanut butter filling(also a first) frosted with a white chocolate ganache(contributing to the 'snowy' tittle) & dark chocolate flowers.
Nutella would team by well too but i so do wanna create with my callebaut callets.
The reason for the white chocolate ganache(i dont know if am right) is the alternate coloring,a good mingling for contrast of the chocolaty brown & white chocolate...http://chockylit.blogspot.com/2006/02/peanut-butter-filled-chocolate.html
I'm always fascinated by cuppy & imagine my reaction when i tumbled in I HEART CUPPYCAKES & READ ABOUT CUPCAKE HEROboy wasnt i thrilled,what a lovely tumble that was & the excitement building up even as am writing this(yup just half an hour back i joined in the gang and am already halfway thru my post)am so so excited.....
Cuppys & fairy cakes,the love for which has been growing since their conception in my heart a few months ago &
that too with just one tray tin...oh my wishlist for all tools et all to assist in making cuppys grows on longer & longer...
love those cute silicone fluted cups &
oh am like a bee to honey for all those thick varied brightly hue'd paper cups but they elude me since.
And all those pans i see online(sugarcrafts,amazonz ,wiltons)have me weak in my knees & add to my ever growing wish list...multi cavity pans,dolls& balls & teddy bears & hearts,mutli textures & multi cavity & 3d cuppy cake tins,mini bears & mini 3d bears,they all keep adding....and u know u actually have these cute heart shaped muffin tins with a removable base...woaaa.& all those piping bags & decorating kits .....oh it just gets more exciting by the moment.
HAving just bought quite a bit of coverture white & dark chocolate callets & also origin chocolate & with a hamilton beach on its way,my wishlist in cuppys will take awhile but that doesnt stop me having fun ,it doesnt & the party goes on.
And though in my heart i do know these will be lovely i going to make just 12,enough for our afternoon tea when everybodys home :-)))
and they sure are a super rich treat,will go excellent with a good expresso or hot vanilla milk.
And then i read something else-this challenge has a winner with a booty for the prize.THESE PRIZES SPONSERED BY THESE FAB SPONSERERS couldn get ant better.They are so so so dang cute that i actually wanna cry thinking of how much of a chance i would have in this amazing world of beautiful bakers of gorgeuos creations but my hearts in this coz I HEART CUPPY CAKES TOO---& VERY V V V MUCH
This choco cuppy cakkey with the white choco chips is somewhere u just cant go wrong at all ,oh as i bite in to the white chippys ,a sweetness so creamy hits me..oh am loving it already when my bite and taste buds reach the luscious peanut butter & cream cheese filling---oh cant go wrong with philly cheese either can i? Its deliciousness & creaminess is heightenned with the addition pf peanut butter & the white chocolate ganache is another fantasy...i love this little mighty package---packs in a goody punch & how....well read ahead to make this one urself....u'll love it ,u just have to....
I made these on friday night and was adding a few lines to the post ,that had to run to the warm oven a few times for a decadent rich bite.they are gorgeous & am happy for the addition of a little milk chocolate(it really does something to that dark chocky flavour that i cant describe---wowowowow)& its like am biting into a nice real rich chocolate fudgy dessert cuppy cake.
Now i love chocolate really really sweet(sugar high=yes)and i found i cup sugar was a wee bit on the sweeter side ,considering what i love,maybe otherwise i would cut down on the sugar to say half or 3/4 & add a tsp of instant expresso.
oh what have the joys of spring brought in....
something that'll make everybody so keen!!!
Not only for today's high tea....
where bdw we r serving expresso coffee!!!
But a delight that'll be looked foward to often...
