Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180C/ 160C fan and line a 12-hole cupcake tin with paper cases.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, with a spoonful of the flour, and mix well.
  • Add the remaining flour, salt and sunflower oil. Stir well.
  • Divide the cake batter into two bowls.
  • Add the SKIPPY® Peanut Butter to one bowl, and the cocoa powder and milk to the other. Stir until well incorporated.
  • Using two dessert spoons, spoon both mixtures into the cupcake cakes.
  • Use a cocktail stick to swirl the batters together.
  • Bake in the centre of the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • Leave on wire rack to cool completely.
  • To make the frosting, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl suspended over a pan of barely simmering water. Cool.
  • Mix together the butter, peanut butter, icing sugar and milk until light and fluffy.
  • Remove 1/3 of the frosting mixture and add the melted, cooled chocolate. Stir well, adding a little extra milk if needed to reach the desired consistency.
  • Place the frostings in a dual frosting piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle.
  • Pipe and decorate as desired.
