Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup

1 box chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 bag chocolate peanut butter cups (Reese's)

Mix together cake mix, eggs, and milk. Pour 2 tablespoons batter into paper liners and place a peanut butter cup on top. Fill paper liners 3/4 full.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack. When completely cooled, frost.

{DELICIOUS frosting to go with it! (If you aren't a huge peanut butter fan: chocolate buttercream is always classic)}

Peanut Butter frosting (it may sound a little funky but it is light and creamy!)

1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth- we all know smooth is the best ;)
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
2 cups powdered sugar
3-4 Tbsp. milk or cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine peanut butter and butter in a large bowl, mixing together until light and fluffy. Stop mixer before adding sugar.

Add sugar, 3 tablespoons milk or cream, and vanilla. Start slow and mix together, gradually increasing the speed. Mix until smooth and creamy. Add 1 tablespoon milk or cream if frosting is too thick.
