chocolate peanut butter cupcakes

Yes, this recipe deserved four pictures because it's that good. I got this recipe off of one of my favorite food blogs and decided to duplicate it that day to help a friend out on their bday. And needless to say they loved it. It was a hit at the party and at work the next day. You can follow the recipe from that food blog or go for a simpler life and follow mine. Use a chocolate boxed cake and make cupcakes - easy. Then for the best part, the frosting.

Peanut Butter Frosting:
1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tbsp milk

I used a KitchenAid mixer with the paddle, dumped all the ingredients in and whipped it good for about 3 minutes. It made the texture super light and fluffy, almost like light cookie dough and people absolutely loved it. If you don't have a powerful mixer you'll want to cream the peanut butter, the butter, and the milk first and then slowly add in powdered sugar.

Top with chopped up pieces of Reese's and you and everyone around you will be happy.

Definitely needed multiple pictures of these. Definitely. I can't wait to have a reason to make some cupcakes!
