These cupcakes came together on a whim this morning. I was making the chocolate cake layer for an upcoming cake project and had extra batter so I made 10 chocolate cupcakes. About a week ago I bought a bag of Peanut Butter M&M (under the influence of PMS HAHA!) and thought that they’d make an excellent addition to a peanut butter filling for chocolate cupcakes. But… as I was whipping up the filling I realized that what I was making would make an even better frosting! So these Peanut Butter M&M Chocolate Cupcakes were born!
You can use any chocolate cupcake recipe you want for these. Heck, use a box mix. Cause let’s be honest here… it’s the frosting that’s the highlight of these cupcakes. Giant mound of peanut buttery, chunky candy goodness. I even used crunchy peanut butter for this frosting to add a little texture to each bite!
