Can I tell you how proud of myself I am for how good these cupcakes turned out?? Well okay, I just followed the recipe (the frosting is TO DIE FOR!) but it is the first time I ever tried doing the fancy piped frosting thing. I usually just swipe it on, and then it looks like it should be for a toddler birthday party. haha :) I loved this - it just looks sooo pretty! And fancy!
Chocolate cake mix (or favorite recipe)
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup unsalted butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
Make cupcakes according to directions on box. While they are baking, cream together peanut butter and butter in a large mixing bowl. Add half the powdered sugar and half the milk, mix well. Add remaining powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Mix until smooth and creamy.
Pipe frosting on cooled cupcakes. Add grated chocolate and peanut butter cups for garnish.
Here is the dessert table we had set up:
We had the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes, Chocolate-Strawberry Shish Kabobs, using pink heart marshmallows, Caramel Heavenlies, and a couple other bars that we got from my husband's work. (He works for a food service company).
