2. Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

Cupcakes easy recipes

These irresistible treats are so fun and quirky, nobody has to know they're just cake mix with a twist. All you have to do is make your favorite chocolate cake mix and pour it into cupcake wrappers until they're about 2/3 of the way full. Put a peanut butter cup in the middle of each one and follow the baking instructions for your cake mix. For an extra fancy twist, get a tub of vanilla frosting and eat the top inch or so (be honest, you were going to do that anyway). Then fill it back up with peanut butter and mix, preferably not with your eating spoon. Don't worry about being thorough-- your frosting will just be "marbled." Let the cupcakes cool for as long as it takes to eat a few more spoonfuls of frosting, and top with the rest!
