Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • package chocolate cake mix (regular size)
  • 1-1/4 cups water
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup canola oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 24 miniature peanut butter cups
  • FROSTING:
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • ⅔ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter
  • Additional miniature peanut butter cups, chopped
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, water, peanut butter, oil and eggs; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes or until smooth.
  2. Fill paper-lined muffin cups half full. Place a peanut butter cup in the center of each cupcake. Cover each with 1 tablespoonful batter.
  3. Bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of the cupcake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. Place chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Stir in peanut butter. Cool, stirring occasionally, to room temperature or until mixture reaches a spreading consistency, about 10 minutes.
  5. Spread over cupcakes; immediately sprinkle with additional peanut butter cups. Let stand until set. Yield: 2 dozen.
