My best blogging friends and I are joining forces today to bring you some delicious recipes! We have been so inspired by one another and thought it would be fun to switch things up and create recipes as an ode to each other! These girls are rock stars in the kitchen so be sure to check out each of their posts today - you won't be disappointed!
The recipe I created was inspired by the ever impressive Dorothy from Crazy For Crust. She is unbelievably talented and creative in the kitchen. I mean, she made Blueberry Pie Fudge!! All of her recipes are so fabulous and and she has such a fun personality that makes her blog a joy to read. And she's pretty sarcastic, which I have to say I love. We may or may not have that in common. ;)
When I saw her post for these donuts, I knew we were gonna be great friends! Those donuts were the inspiration for these muffins.
I am calling them muffins so you don't feel guilty about eating them for breakfast. You're welcome.
They are moist and peanut buttery with a hint of banana. Most importantly though, they are dunked in ganache (my most favorite food) and smothered with peanut butter cups. I die.
Go make some now. And while they are in the oven check out my friends blogs and see what their whipping up and who inspired them!

Ganache Topped Peanut Butter Cup Muffins
by:Back For Seconds
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 ripe banana
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 8 oz semi sweet chocolate chopped (or chocolate chips)

For the Muffins:
In a large mixing bowl beat together peanut butter, mashed banana and sugar until smooth. Add in milk, sour cream, vanilla, and egg. Mix well. Gradually add in the flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder and mix until well combined. Scoop batter into prepared muffin tins 2/3 of the way full. Bake for about 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out crumbly. Let cool on wire racks.
For the Ganache:
In a double boiler heat heavy cream until it just starts to simmer. Turn off heat and pour in chocolate. Let it sit for a few seconds and then stir until all the chocolate is melted and is smooth. Dip muffin tops into the ganache and sprinkle with peanut butter cups.
