Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

Since Reese's Peanut Butter cups are my favourite candy (and believe me, I like a LOT of candy!) I knew when I saw this recipe that I had to make them. The recipe starts with a full size Peanut butter cup in the bottom of your muffin liner. It doesn't get any better then that.

The sour cream and just a hint of peanut butter in the cupcakes do not overpower and the marshmallow fluff in the icing makes the dense buttercream a little lighter. I have already passed this recipe on once and the recipient said they turned out very well. Give it a whirl...

Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes
1 white cake mix
¾ cup water
1/3 cup oil
4 eggs
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup sour cream
24 peanut butter cups

Marshmallow Butter cream
1 cup butter
1 (7oz) jar marshmallow fluff
3 cups icing sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
Place unwrapped peanut butter cup in the bottom of each lined muffin cup. Mix together cupcake ingredients. Fill ¾ full and bake at 350F for 18 minutes. Cool and frost.
