Over-The-Top Chocolate Cupcakes with Nutella/Peanut-Butter Frosting and Peanut-Butter Mini-Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate Frosting!


If you're looking for a real showstopper dessert, you'll love these luscious cupcakes!  They are so much fun and could be made in a variety of flavor combinations.

I was truly intrigued and inspired recently when I saw a photo of similar cupcakes topped with mini-cupcakes.  It was on the Google+ Community for Chocolate Lovers!! They don't generally post the recipe for the photos...it's just generally photos of very tempting chocolate desserts.  The mini-cupcakes were tilted, and I couldn't decide if I liked them leaning or would like them better perfectly centered.  Well, after making them for my daughter's birthday last week, I decided that I, indeed, like them best tilted.

I chose my moist, dense chocolate cupcakes and frosted them with my Nutella/peanut-butter frosting.  Then, I topped them with my tender, mini-peanut-butter cupcakes which I frosted with my rich chocolate frosting.  I, then, drizzled the assembled cupcakes with jarred, unsalted caramel sauce (salted caramel sauce is too much, as there is salt in the Nutella/peanut-butter frosting).  I should have drizzled more for the photo; as by the time I photoed the cupcake, the drizzle had soaked into it.
