Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cupcakes

What do you buy to celebrate the birthday of someone who doesn't really like cake? 
A cupcake in his favorite flavors! 
To appease his wife, he agreed to have cupcakes. Hey, at least you can put a candle on top and lick the icing only, if you don't particularly want to eat the cake... YUM! 

I made chocolate cupcakes with Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting and crumbled frozen peanut butter cups on top of the icing. 

I found a great Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe on

I used: 

8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups powdered/confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup milk (at least), depending how creamy you want it


I hope he enjoyed eating them as much as I enjoyed making them.
