  • 2In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Beat a third of the flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture. Do the same with a third of the milk. Repeat this process until everything is well-blended. Scrape down the sides of the bowl btween additions.
  • 3For medium cupcakes, fill paper cups two-thirds full. For larger cupcakes, fill to just below top rim. Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center of cupcake comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes.
  • 4To make the icing:Place chocolate in a medium bowl and set aside.In a heavy 1-quart saucepan,using a wooden spoon, combine cream,corn syrup and butter.Cook over medium heat until hot but not boiling)little beads of water will form on side of pot). Pour cream over chocolate and stir until blended. Voila-ganache!! Let cool completely.
