Peanut Butter – Chocolate Cupcakes

These were ridiculously good.

Betty Crocker came out with a series of cake mixes a year ago. And until today I had only made the straight out of the box, plain delicious cake. It was fine.

It’s a mix.

Off the shelf.

From the REGULAR grocery store.

That I can eat.

~SHUT UP! ~ no way. yes way.

O.M.G.  And, I confess that the baking around here has come to a full stop lately, and no baked goods have been available, not like they used to be anyway… so I may be slightly undernourished in the cake department, and desperate for something yummy, just as a disclaimer. Just sayin’. …..Note: I am dairy free, gluten free and egg free, and it all works out great with the substitutions that I make.  And delicious. Trust me. Really.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cupcakes

  • 1 box of Betty Crocker’s -GLUTEN FREE -Devil’s Food Chocolate Cake mix, —mixed up into a batter —

Delicious filling:

  • 3/4 C Skippy Natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla (from Costco – Gluten Free on the label)
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 325 and put cupcake liners in the cupcake pan. Spoon 1/2 of the batter into each cup and place a generous teaspoon of the delicious filling on top of the batter, then add more of the chocolate batter to fill each cup to about 2/3 full.

Bake for 22 minutes.

Let cool on a wire rack until you can’t stand the excitement anymore, and then eat one. Seriously, they taste like a Reece’s Peanut Butter Cupcake. yum.
