Frosting:

  • 3 squares semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter

Directions

For truffles, in a microwave safe bowl, melt white chocolate at 70% power; stir until smooth. Stir in peanut butter. Cover and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes or until firm enough to form into balls. Shape into twelve 1 inch balls; roll in cocoa. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk and coffee. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Top each with a truffle (do not press down).

Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in cake portion comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate with cream, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in peanut butter. Transfer to a bowl; chill until mixture reaches spreading consistency. Frost cupcakes. Store in the refrigerator.
