Peanut butter cupcakes are super easy to make with a cake mix, ready to spread frosting, and peanut butter.


  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • .
  • Frosting
  • 1 can ready to spread chocolate frosting
  • 1/3 cup peanut chunky butter


Preheat oven to 350°.
Prepare cake mix according to package directions, adding the 1/2 cup of peanut butter along with the eggs and water. Spoon batter into muffin pans lined with baking cups, filling each about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cake bounces back when touched lightly. Place cupcakes on rack to cool.

Blend ready-to-spread frosting with the 1/3 cup peanut butter. Frost cooled cupcakes. Makes about 2 1/2 to 3 dozen cupcakes.

A favorite!!, Member srmullen

This recipe has been a hit with family, friends and co-workers. I have even been asked to make them special for birthdays!! My only substitution is using creamy peanut butter in place of chunky. Great recipe!!
