{Katie’s Kitchen} Easy Peanut Butter Frosting Cupcakes

My favorite cake is chocolate with Peanut Butter frosting…so why not try with cupcakes for our station Cupcake Bake Off today! Of course, Katie’s Kitchen HAD to be involved.

I used a classic boxed Devil’s Food Cake mix from the grocery store, follow the recipe on the back to bake your cupcakes!

For the frosting:

Start out with 2 sticks of softened butter and 3/4 cup of creamy peanut butter. I used my stand mixer on low for 2 minutes until blended with the paddle attachment.

Then, add 2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar and mix on low. Add the remaining 2 cups of sugar and the vanilla extract and half of the whipping cream. Beat on low, then increase to medium-high speed for about 2 minutes until the frosting is fluffy.

Spread on cupcakes when cooled. Add a peanut butter cup for topping!
