Ingredients

Cupcakes:
Peanut Butter Mousse Frosting:

Directions

For the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line muffin pans with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, cream together the sugars and oil. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the milk and peanut butter until the batter is smooth. Then scoop the batter into the liners. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. The cupcakes are done when they spring back to the touch. Let cool.

For the mousse frosting: Using an electric mixer, beat the peanut butter and cream cheese in a large bowl to blend. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until well blended. Using clean, dry beaters, beat the whipping cream in a medium bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold into the peanut butter mixture in four additions.

To assemble: You will need to utilize a small teaspoon or butter knife to cut out the center of the cupcakes. Once you have removed about 1/2 inch of the center, add some jelly to the middle of the cupcake directly from the jar. It is easier to use the jelly that comes in a squeezable container or you may just use a small spoon.

Top the cupcakes with peanut butter mousse frosting.
