Ingredients

  • 1

    box Devil’s Food Cake Mix, plus ingredients on box

  • 18

    regular size peanut butter cups

  • 1

    box Reese’s Pieces

  • FROSTING:

  • 1

    cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 1/4

    cup creamy peanut butter

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 1/2

    cups confectioners’ sugar

  • 2

    tablespoons heavy cream

Directions

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. Beat on high for a good 30 seconds. Spread frosting onto cupcakes with an offset spatula or a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip. Sprinkle with Reese’s Pieces.
