I wracked my brain to think of a more concise name for these cupcakes. Really, I did. Somehow a shorter, cuter, catchier name just didn’t fit. In reality this lengthy name doesn’t begin to describe just how wonderful these Peanut Butter Stuffed Double Chocolate Banana Cupcakes are!
Did you think it couldn’t get much better than a double chocolate banana cupcake topped with a luscious peanut butter icing? Then I probably shouldn’t tell you that I took delicious one step further with a peanut butter buckeye filling baked right inside.
That’s right. I said peanut butter inside!
And while that covert buckeye filling is hiding away inside, pillowy swirls of Reese’s peanut butter frosting float atop the cupcake.
It’s a beautiful thing.
I understand. All this deliciousness in one small package can be overwhelming. Just breathe.
We’ll make it.
Each component of these Peanut Butter Stuffed Double Chocolate Banana Cupcakes would be heavenly alone; any combination of two elements would be downright divine; but all three together will put you over the edge! These are the type of cupcakes that could start a riot if one is not careful.
The Reese’s peanut butter frosting is the same one that I created for my Reese’s Peanut Butter Blondies and the peanut butter filling is like the peanut buttery center of a Buckeye. I adapted my Double Chocolate Banana Muffin recipe to create the Double Chocolate Banana cupcakes, and they are superb!
Next time you have some slightly over-ripe bananas (not super, duper over ripe because this is not the recipe for those) don’t even think about making banana bread. Make these beauties instead. In fact, it would be justifiable to buy overripe bananas for this recipe.
I did. And I have no regrets.
