Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting

So Mom and Dad stopped at the office one time and I had these in my car ready to go to a reunion for Brent's family. they both had one and LOVED them! Mom called me less than 20 minutes later for the recipe! And at the reunion, there was ZERO left out of 5 dozen assorted cupcakes!! It's such an EASY recipe too!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting

1 box devil’s food cake mix

1 small box Jello instant chocolate pudding mix

8 oz sour cream

1 c vegetable oil

4 eggs

1/2 c milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 c Reese's peanut butter chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners. This recipe made about 18 cupcakes.

Dump everything but the peanut butter chips in the bowl of a stand mixer.

mix well until the batter is thick.

Stir in the peanut butter chips.

Fill the cupcake liners about half-full. The batter is very thick.

Use the back of the cake mix box to get an approximate baking time. I added about 10 minutes to it for these to get done.

Use the toothpick test to ensure that the center is done.

Let them cool for a bit while you make the icing.

Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting

3 Tbsp heavy whipping cream

1/2 c peanut butter

Cream the butter until light and fluffy. Slowly add in the sugar.

Add the vanilla and cream.

Beat in the peanut butter until creamy.

Frost the cupcakes as desired. Top with half a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.
