Peanut Butter Chocolate Cuffins

muffin.master's picture
Peanut butter chocolate muffins bring together the delight of peanut butter and the rich taste of chocolate in this little muffin. Baked with cocoa, peanut butter and buttermilk, these muffins have a lovely peanut butter cream icing that makes them even more endearing. I call these peanut butter chocolate cuffins.

Directions

In a large mixer bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, salt and baking powder.
Make a well in the center.
Add shortening, buttermilk, water, eggs and vanilla.
Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl.
Then beat on high speed for 3 minutes.
Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filling cups three-quarters full.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out dry.
Remove from pan and cool completely.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat together cream cheese and peanut butter.
Add milk and vanilla, beating well.
Gradually add icing sugar and beat until smooth.
(If necessary, add additional milk until a smooth consistency is reached.) Spread over cooled cuffins.
NOTE: To make this cuffin even more special, take a pastry bag with a large star tip and fill with icing.
Insert the tip into the center of each cuffin.
Pipe some icing into the cuffin and add a swirl on top.
