Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cupcakes // Cupcakes de Manteiga de Amendoim e Chocolate



I'll take two-layered anything any day.

Layers can be masks. Layers can be identity. Layers can be body. They can be soul.

And if one layer is all about that peanut butter and the other one is chocolate, even better.


Ingredients:

CUPCAKES:
2 eggs
125g Sidul sugar
125g butter
125g flour
80g peanut butter chips
1 tablespoon Segredos da Tradição chocolate liqueur 

ICING:
100g cream cheese
50g butter
80g Sidul powdered sugar
1/2 tea spoon vanilla extract


Whisk the eggs and the sugar. Add the butter, the flour, the chocolate liqueur and finally the peanut butter chips.


Fill cupcake paper cases half way and take them to the oven for 17 minutes at 170ºC.

For the frosting, beat the butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. 

Enjoy!
Por mim prefiro qualquer coisa que tenha duas camadas seja em que ocasião for.

Camadas podem ser máscaras. Camadas podem ser identidade. Camadas podem ser corpo. Podem ser alma.

E se uma camada for de manteiga de amendoim e a outra de chocolate, ainda melhor.

Ingredientes:

CUPCAKES:
2 ovos
125g açúcar Sidul
125g manteiga
125g farinha
80g pepitas de manteiga de amendoim
1 colher de sopa de licor de chocolate Segredos da Tradição

COBERTURA:
100g queijo creme
50g manteiga
80g açúcar em pó Sidul
1/2 colher de chá de extrato de baunilha


Batam os ovos e o açúcar. Acrescentem a manteiga, a farinha, o licor de chocolate e finalmente as pepitas de manteiga de amendoim.

Encham as formas de papel até metade e levem-nas ao forno durante 17 minutos a 170ºC.

Para a cobertura, batam a manteiga, o queijo creme, o açúcar em pó e o extrato de baunilha.

Bom apetite!
