Chocolate PeanutButter Cupcake recipe

These delicious cupcakes are a huge hit! They are soo easy to make and they are always my go-to dessert when i need something sure to please! These may be my boyfriend's favorite cupcakes and when I let him help me frost them i always find that several cupcakes are MIA...aka...eaten!
So yes, this recipe is made with a box cake mix but you can use any chocolate mix you like..I used Betty cuz she knows her stuff! But they are semi home-made since you will be making the frosting yourself!!!
Here is what you need:
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix (your favorite)
  • powdered sugar
  • milk
  • creamy peanut butter (you can use chunky if you like peanuts in your frosting)
All you have to do is bake the cake as directed in cupcake comes out super light and fluffy and airy. Let them cool down in the pan for a few minutes and then on a wire rack. While waiting (and trying not to eat them!!!) make your frosting...Now measurements here are not incredibly important because you cannot in any way mess this up and it depends on how many cupcakes made it to the frosting stage (hopefully you didn't eat too many). Okay, in a medium mixing bowl place about a half cup of peanut butter, half a cup of powdered sugar and a few tablespoons of milk and whisk with an actual whisk (use makes it better I swear!)...whisk until it is the desired want a sticky, gooey glaze-like frosting...if it is too dry/thick just add more milk a teaspoon at a time....if it is too thin add some more powdered sugar...give it a taste...too sweet for your taste? add more peanut I said your CANNOT mess this up I guarantee it!! If you have any left over store it in the fridge it will last a few weeks! And remember a little bit of frosting goes a very long way!!
