Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cupcakes

ImageUm, seriously. How good do these look?

I just used regular old chocolate cake mix and added a few chocolate chips to each cupcake before baking. I did mini cupcakes for this particular batch.

Now, the peanut butter icing. The peanut butter icing.

Peanut. Butter. Icing.


  • 1 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 stick of softened butter
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

Mix the peanut butter and butter together. Slowly add the powdered sugar. As the mixture gets thicker, slowly add the vanilla and a little bit of milk to keep the mixture creamy. Keep adding the powdered sugar with just a few tsp. of water until you’ve added all the sugar and the mixture is the consistency of thick frosting.

I used a ziplock bag and cut the corner off to pipe the icing on the cupcakes.
