  • 1

    cup unsalted butter, softened

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 18 muffin tins with cupcake liners. Mix cake batter according to box instructions. Place a peanut butter cup at the bottom of each cupcake liner. Spoon cupcake batter into cupcake liners, filling ¾ of the way. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until firm to the touch on top. Let cool. Frosting: Combine butter and peanut butter in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Add in vanilla extract. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar and heavy cream.
