Peanut Butter Cupcakes

The other day, I was feeling like I hadn't baked anything in a long time so I decided to make my favorite dessert...cupcakes! Now, like many others, I am guilty of taking the shortcut at times and using boxed cake mix. However, I thought some aspects of the cupcakes should have my own twist to them so I added some mini Reese's cups to the bottom of the cupcake and I made my own peanut butter frosting.

Peanut Butter Frosting:

  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
1. Mix confectioner's sugar, peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt on medium low speed until creamy.

2. Add the cream and mix on high speed until mixture is light and smooth.
