Ok I am in love with this book! 101 Gourmet Cupcakes in 10 minutes I would recommend it to anyone! I have tried several of the recipes and LOVED every one! I have to post just one more, which is my current favorite. Chocolate Peanut butter cup! TO DIE FOR! I gave up some of these babies(because I would have eaten all 24 had I not) and everyone I gave them to said the same thing TO DIE FOR! Try them for yourself. There is a whole Reese's Peanut butter cup hiding inside! Super easy and super yummy! If you like cupcakes, this book is for you!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes
1 box chocolate cake mix (I used the chocolate fudge)
1 cup milk
1 bag chocolate peanut butter cups (a regular bag only has 14 cups in it.. so I bought 3 of the 8 packs, had as many as I needed and it was about the same price as the bag)
Mix together cake mix, eggs, and milk. Pour 2 tablespoons of batter into paper liners and place a peanut butter cup on top then fill liners 3/4 full with more batter. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove from oven and allow to cool on wire rack. Frost when completely cooled.
Peanut butter frosting
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, room temp.
2 cups powdered sugar
3-4 TBSP milk or cream
1 tsp vanilla
Combine peanut butter and butter in a large bowl, mixing together until light and fluffly. Stop mixer and add sugar, 3 tablespoons milk and vanilla. Start slow and mix together, gradually increasing the speed. Mix until smooth and creamy. Add 1 tablespoon milk if frosting is too thick.
