Peanut Butter Bliss

Chocolate Cupcakes

1 box of triple chocolate cake mix
4 eggs
1 cup of vegetable or canola oil
1 pkg of instant chocolate pudding
1 cup of water
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Peanut Butter Fluffed Frosting

1 1/4 cup of creamy peanut butter
4 tablespoons of butter (I used salted and softened)
8 oz cream cheese
1 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 cup of whipped cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-3 tablespoons of whole milk
Garnish: crushed peanut butter cups

Preheat oven to 350.  Fill cupcake tins with liners.  Break 4 eggs into mixing bowl, mix and gradually add in oil.  Once emulsified add in pudding mix.  Continue mixing adding in your water and alternating it with your cake mix.  Beat on high for at least 2 minutes.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Pour into liners a little over halfway (I use an ice cream scoop to help do the trick)  Bake at 350 for 16-17 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, mix together peanut butter, butter, cream cheese until well incorporated.  Add in vanilla and mix.  Slowly incorporate sugar until a frosting like consistency.  Add in sugar and beat on med high, add in milk gradually as needed.  Fold in whipped cream.

Frost cupcakes!!  I used the Wilton Decorator Pro I got for Christmas, it did a nice job.  I was impressed!!
