This recipe was born to utilize the leftover peanut butter mixture from the chocolate and peanut butter swirl cake ๐Ÿ˜€ But the result was yummilicious!!

I baked Chocolate cupcakes adapted  from a recipe I read at the Tasteofhome.

Then I scooped the centers of the cupcakes,  put in some creamy peanut butter filling and later frosted them with lots of milk chocolate ganache.
