Can I just tell you that I am so loving The Voice this season? Honestly, my Mondays are so much better now that this show is back. I think all of the coaches are amazing and the talent this year is great. The stories on the participants are so inspirational. Plus Adam is just so cute.

I love to relax and watch these shows with a little dessert and it makes me happy.

I felt like making a cupcake that tasted like a peanut butter cup, so today I want to share with you what I call my Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes.





These peanut butter cup cupcakes are delighful and so easy to make! You will be asked for the recipe!I used a devil’s food cake mix from a box and made a peanut butter frosting. I usually make my frosting from scratch because I really like the taste and it is worth the extra few minutes to make.

Peanut Butter Cups Cupcakes

1 package chocolate or devil’s food cake mix

2 eggs

1/3 cup vegetable oil or melted butter

Bake chocolate or devil’s food cupcakes according to package directions. While the cupcakes are baking, make this frosting. Let cupcakes cool completely before frosting.

Peanut Butter Frosting

3 cups powdered sugar

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup milk

Cream butter with an electric mixer and slowly add powdered sugar. Add peanut butter and milk. Whip until smooth and creamy. Frost cupcakes after cupcakes have cooled.

I added a mini Reese’s peanut butter cup and sprikles to the top. These are really good when you are watching TV or pretty much for any time.
