PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE BUCKEYE CUPCAKES

These Peanut Butter Chocolate Buckeye Cupcakes are made with a moist chocolate cupcake, peanut butter frosting and chocolate ganache – all topped with a cute little buckeye treat! Perfect for the chocolate and peanut butter fans out there!
There’s so much to love about these cupcakes. They are basically two treats in one, which is never a bad thing. It ensures that your sweet tooth is most definitely satisfied when you’re done.

Not to mention the peanut butter and chocolate combo. I’m pretty sure it’s like the number one most loved combo and these cupcakes are rich in both flavors. It’s a cupcake that will definitely not leave you hanging.

To make them, you’ll first want to put together the buckeyes. They are super simple to make, though the rolling of the balls and dipping in chocolate does add a touch of time to whole process of completing the cupcakes. The buckeyes are made with peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar and a little vanilla extract. Roll them into balls and dip them in chocolate and try not to eat them all in process!

Next up is the chocolate cupcake. I used my very favorite Homemade Chocolate Cupcakes for these. They really are the best cupcake ever. SO moist! Don’t be alarmed at the thin batter and lower temperature setting – it’s all correct.

INGREDIENTS:
BUCKEYES
  • 1/2 cup (140g) creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp (42g) salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups (115-173g) powdered sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup melting chocolate (I used Ghirardelli melting wafers)

CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES
  • 1 cup (130g) all purpose flour
  • 1 cups (207g) sugar
  • 6 tbsp (43g) Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa powder*
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) vegetable oil
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) hot water

PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING
1 cup (224g) unsalted butter
3/4 cup (210g) peanut butter
4 1/2 cups (575g) powdered sugar
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
4-5 tbsp (60-75ml) milk or water

CHOCOLATE GANACHE
4 oz (2/3 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 tbsp (90ml) heavy whipping cream
DIRECTIONS:
TO MAKE THE BUCKEYES:
1. Combine the peanut butter, butter and vanilla extract with a mixer until combined.
2. Add 1 cup of the powdered sugar and mix until well combined.
3. Add additional powdered sugar until the mixture is at the consistency where you can create a ball that will hold it’s shape and stay on a toothpick.
4. Create balls of about 1 tablespoon each. You should get about 16 balls.
5. Melt the chocolate according to package directions and dip each peanut butter ball into the chocolate using a toothpick. Set balls onto parchment paper to dry, then refrigerate.

TO MAKE THE CUPCAKES:
6. Preheat oven to 300°F (148°C) and prepare a cupcake pan with liners.
7. Add the dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together. Set aside.
8. Combine the egg, buttermilk, vegetable oil and vanilla in another medium sized bowl.
9. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
10. Add the water to the batter and mix until well combined. Batter will be thin.
11. Fill the cupcake liners about half way and bake for 18-23 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs.
12. Remove the cupcakes from oven and allow to cool for 2 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
13. To make the frosting, beat the butter in a large mixer bowl and mix until smooth.
14. Add the peanut butter and mix until well combined.
15. Add about half of the powdered sugar and mix until well combined.
16. Add the vanilla extract, salt and 3 tablespoons of milk or water and mix until well combined.
17. Add the remaining powdered sugar and mix until well combined.
18. Add additional water or milk, as needed, to get the right consistency of frosting.
19. Pipe the frosting onto the cooled cupcakes. I used Ateco tip 808, a large round tip. Hold the tip slightly above the center of the cupcake, apply pressure to the piping bag and allow the frosting to spread from the center out to the edges of the cupcake, then slowly raise the piping bag and tip of create the dome. Release pressure and stop piping.
20. Refrigerate the frosted cupcakes for 2-3 hours, so that the frosting is firm.
21. To make the chocolate ganache, add the chocolate chips to a small bowl.
22. Heat the heavy whipping cream in the microwave until it just begins to boil, then pour over the chocolate chips. Allow to sit for 2-3 minutes, then whisk until smooth.
23. Dip the top of each frosted cupcake into the chocolate ganache and allow excess chocolate to drip off.
24. Place one of the buckeyes on top of each cupcake and allow the ganache to cool.
25. Refrigerate cupcakes in an air tight container until ready to serve. Serve at room temperature. Cupcakes are best for 3-4 days.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
