Makes

My family just loves these cupcakes, especially the subtle taste of peanut butter in the frosting. Chocolate frosting is equally delicious on top. —Alyce Wyman, Pembina, North Dakota

Ingredients

  • 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  • 18 miniature peanut butter cups
  • 1-1/3 cups prepared vanilla frosting
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

Directions

  1. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of batter into each paper-lined muffin cup. Place a peanut butter cup in each; fill two-thirds full with remaining batter.
  2. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the cake portion comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. In a small bowl, combine frosting and peanut butter until smooth. Frost cupcakes.
