Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes

Peanut butter and chocolate.  Who doesn't love the combination?  But, this flavor was actually chosen for Madi's party because I wanted to use a cute decorating idea from Pintrest, not because the two should just be together.  Months ago I was searching for cupcake ideas and saw these cute "mini cupcake" toppers.  And, they were surprisingly easy.  Just frost the top of a bite size Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and place it on top of a cupcake.  Brilliant!
 Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes (inspired by OH! Cupcakes)
Makes 24 cupcakes

Favorite chocolate fudge cake mix
Two single serve packets of coffee (decaf, if serving kiddos)

Prepare cake as directed, mixing coffee with water before adding to batter.

1/4 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar

Beat butter and peanut butter together.
Add milk and vanilla.
While mixing slowly, add powdered sugar.

Use a large star tip, like Wilton 1M, to frost 24 mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups to look like cupcakes.  I left the paper on to make them look more like the real deal.
Frost cupcakes and add a mini cupcake topper to each.
