When Friend Carol made these, she used vanilla frosting.  Later she decided next time she would use a chocolate frosting.  Don't you think that would just taste "heavenly".....chocolate peanut butter frosting? In fact you could do that anytime when you used the canned frosting. She served these to a group of us and didn't take pictures along the way for me to share. I think you can follow her directions though.


1       pkg (17 - ox) chocolate cake mix (+ ingredients to make the cake)
18     miniature peanut butter cups
1       can vanilla frosting (could use chocolate if you prefer)
2      tablespoons creamy peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tins with paper cup liners.

Mix cake mix according to package directions.

Place 2 tablespoonfuls of batter in each cup.

Place a peanut butter cup on top of batter.

Continue filling the cup til 2/3 rds full.

Bake for 20 minutes.

While cup cakes are cooking on a wire rack, prepare the frosting.

Combine the frosting and the peanut butter and stir til completely blended. 

Remove paper cups and frost with the frosting.

Makes about 18 cup cakes.
