This is just a recipe I came up with when I was in the mood of tinkering a little, rather than following a recipe. Even people who like peanut butter have told me this is VERY peanut buttery, so you've really got to love it for this recipe!
- For the cupcakes:.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Combine the brownie mix, eggs, and milk in a bowl, and mix until combined. Add the peanut butter and mix until incorporated. If the batter is too thick, add the water.
- Spoon the batter into paper-lined cupcake tins. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
- For the frosting:.
- Whisk together the water and powdered sugar; once combined, add the peanut butter and mix until smooth. Spread on cooled cupcakes, and top with peanut brittle or chopped peanuts if desired.
