First time’s the charm, if you’re hobby baker Cara Sapida. The local reporter and pal of our Head of Advertising, Michelle, whipped up her first original recipe to submit to Pillsbury’s annual Bake-Off contest, only to end up as a finalist in the running for $1 million. Cara didn’t end up winning, but her Chocolate-Peanut Butter Layered Cupcakes were a big hit in the ModOffice when Michelle brought in a batch!

WOWZERS, these look delectable! I’m going to make them…right now.
I MUST MAKE THESE!!!!
MMMM… must bake now!

They look SOOO good!! This is the reason I hate being allergic to peanuts:(
OH. MY. GOODNESS.
i can not wait to make these…. right now 🙂
Those look amazing! I think I might just try them.. 🙂
And Kit: if you’re not allergic to all nuts, I’m sure they’d be amazing with hazelnut or almond butter! 🙂
yummm…these sound delicious! This is definitely getting added to my recipe box.
Pam: Yeah, I was thinking I might be able to subsitute with something else since peanuts are the only nut I’m allergic to. Thanks for reminding me, I saw some plain hazelnut paste and hazelnut&chocolate chips once, hopefully I’ll be able to find them again! But still, I LOVE the taste of peanuts! YUM!
have them in the oven currently…the anticipation is killing me!
I made these and they were delicious. They were super moist and yummy. Also we used mini reeses cups that we cut into 4ths and they looked really cool.
Mini reeses cups instead of reeses chips*
I made these on July 4th for me and my Dad. And they were amazingly delicious and so moist! I changed up the recipe a bit by making a half recipe which was a bit of a challenge, but turned out well. I also used penut butter and chocolate swirl chips and put a mini penut butter cup in the center of the cupcake and it added just a little extra surprise when you dug into it 🙂
