Brownie Cupcakes with Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting - Tidymom Blog

Brownie Cupcakes
1 prepared box of your favorite Brownie Mix (we use and love Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownies)
1/2 to 1 cup Reeses Peanut Butter chips (I just dumped some in)

Make brownies according to package directions.
Add peanut butter chips and mix.
Pour batter into paper lined cupcake pan, filling about 3/4 full (I got 15 cupcakes out of this mix)
Bake at 350° approximately 20 mins or until a tooth pick comes out clean. Don't over bake.
Cool completely.

Peanut Butter Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream (you could probably use milk, and maybe only 3 tbsp)
2 cups powdered sugar

Beat butter and peanut butter in a medium bowl with an electric mixer.
Gradually add powdered sugar
Add cream one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick.
Beat for at least 3 minutes until nice and fluffy.
Frost brownie cupcakes with frosting. I used a 1M tip, but you could spread with a knife if you want.
