Peanut butter and chocolate together can't be beat. It's my favorite. These are made from a chocolate cake mix with a cream cheese and peanut butter frosting that takes just a few minutes to whip up while the cupcakes bake. I keep cake mixes in the pantry because they are so versatile and make an almost instant dessert. To make these extra special, I topped each frosted cupcake with half of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Simply delicious!
