Hello, hello!

I made chocolate-peanut cupcakes and they turned out so good that I had to share the recipe with you. The original recipe was found from here : but it is in finnish. I changed the original a little bit because I didn't find peanut butter from here.

For 12 cupcakes

150 gr  milk chocolate
150 gr  butter
1½  dl  sugar
2     eggs
3½  dl  flour
2   teaspoons of baking powder
2½ spoons of cocoa powder
1½  dl  milk
1½  dl  salted peanuts

200 gr cream cheese
350 gr chocolate hazelnut spread

Before you start doing anything make sure that you turn on your oven into 225 degrees. Melt the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds so that it gets a bit soft and mix it with the sugar. Add the eggs one at a time. Combine the dry ingredients ( flour, baking powder, cocoa powder) together and put it in to the mixture in turn with the milk. Chop the milk chocolate and the salted peanuts and add them into the mixture.

Because I don't like peanuts that much I crushed them. In the picture they are not crushed. You can do as you like :)

Put the mixture into small tins ( or whatever you have at home ). Remember to put butter on them before you fill them with the mixture. Leave them in the oven for about 15 minutes.

This is easy. Just mix the cream cheese and the chocolate hazelnut spread together. I used philadelphia and merenda (nutella is good too). Remember not to put the icing when the muffins are still warm!

 For the icing I use this kind of shape ( I don't know how you call them in english). If you have something else don't worry it will do the same thing :)

  When the muffins have cooled-down you can put the icing. I usually start from the middle of the muffin and go around.

At least my friend Maria liked them very much! I hope you try the recipe as well :)
