Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

I made these Chocolate cupcakes with PB chips and topped with PB buttercream and a Reese's PB Cup for a library cakewalk tomorrow.

Since I (like most people) have precious little time to bake in the summer I started with a box of Duncan Hines Dark Choc Fudge cake mix made according to directions, but I added a single serving container of unsweetened applesauce to add moistness. This little tip works so well!

Here is the PB Buttercream recipe
2 1/2 sticks butter, softened
2/3 c. Crisco shortening
3 Tbs heavy cream
2 lbs powdered sugar (about 8 cups)
About 1/4 cup Reese's PB Ice Cream Topping a little at a time

Cream together butter and shortening until smooth. Slowly add 2 T. topping and 3 tbs. heavy cream. Gradually add the powdered sugar and scrape down the bowl very well once it's all added. Slowly add topping a Tbs at a time until frosting reaches desired consistency.

2 great tips - thank you. I love the peanut butter cupcakes. I don't think I've even heard of pb topping. I need to check if it's even available in Canada.

This seems very interesting to me. I was looking for info about this stuff, but I hadn't been able to find exactly what I wanted. I even got more resumes about Viagra than about this theme, can you believe it, I mean, it's so weird isn't it?
