I love the fall season. The temperatures drop just enough during the day to make it comfortable. The colors of fall are gorgeous and the fall air makes me want to sit down on my deck and enjoy the season with a nice hot cup of coffee and a delicious, peanut butter truffle filled chocolate cupcake topped with a creamy peanut butter frosting!

Get inspired by chocolate and peanut butter truffle flavors!

I’m completely inspired to get in my kitchen in the fall. That inspiration includes consuming fall flavors on a regular basis! While baking these cupcakes, I enjoyed the International Delight® Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer in my coffee to help add to that inspiration and enjoy the creamy swirl of seasonal spice in my hot mug!

These chocolate peanut butter molten cupcakes are quite easy to make. I made the peanut butter truffle with some peanut butter flavored chips, some of the International Delight® REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup creamer with a little bit of heavy cream. Oh my, the truffle part alone was good enough to just eat by itself!

Once the truffle filling is chilled, it is then shaped into a ball before placing in the center of the cupcake batter. The cupcake batter is pretty special in its own right too! I used the International Delight® REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup creamer in the cake, along with coffee! The flavor is incredible and texture was spot on.
