These Peanut Caramel Cupcakes are a soft and fluffy vanilla cupcake with a soft and gooey peanut caramel filling, topped with a peanut butter frosting. These cupcakes are soft, light and fluffy. They’re sweet with hints of caramel and of course peanut. If you like peanut butter, these are for you!
For the cupcakes I used my trusty Vanilla Cupcakes recipe. I absolutely love this recipe as it always turns out light and fluffy vanilla cupcakes. I then wondered what it would be like if I added peanut butter to my caramel sauce. (I know it sounds weird but hear me out….).
I made a batch of the caramel sauce and added the peanut butter hoping it would taste somewhat edible. Let me tell you, it’s more than edible! I couldn’t stop eating it! It tastes like like a sweetened peanut butter with an undertone of rich caramel. Trust me when I say, you will love these!
