When it comes to cupcakes, you can never have too many toppings. Some of the more traditional ones include frosting, sprinkles, or coconut. But have you ever thought of deviating from the norm and trying your hand at Martha Stewart’s Soft-Serve Peanut Butter Cupcakes, which include a frozen chocolate glaze? The cooking mogul is giving us a new spin on these common treats that could be served at birthday parties, holidays, or even just a special dinner dessert. Because what’s better than cake with frozen frosting served in a cupcake form?

Everyone will love this twist on soft-serve dunked in a chocolate shell. 🍦 Chill the frosted cakes while you make a semisweet-chocolate glaze and after it cools to room temperature, carefully dunk them. Chill 10 more minutes, and cue the nostalgia trip! Check out the recipe in our October issue or visit the link in bio to learn more. Plus, be sure to pick up a copy of Martha’s newest cookbook "Cake Perfection", available October 13, which features this recipe and so many others! 📷: @lennartweibull
Before anything else, gather up your ingredients. You’ll need cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt, buttermilk, safflower oil (or you can substitute for canola oil), eggs, vanilla extract, peanut butter, semisweet chocolate, and Swiss Meringue Buttercream (AKA the most silky-smooth frosting, courtesy of Stewart). If you’re getting hungry, you’ll just have to wait a little while longer because it’s time to cook these bad boys up!
Whip out your muffin tins and bake the cocoa-infused cupcakes with paper liners. Next up, pipe a swirl of butter creams onto each cupcake until your mouth begins to drool (or, at least, that’s what we imagine will happen). Dip your cooled-down cupcakes into the glazed chocolate that you’ve made and off to the refrigerator it goes! For the full recipe and ingredients, check it out from Martha Stewart herself.
