Making peanut butter cupcakes is always a fun treat to make for the kids. And these cupcakes were no different.

I had some extra batter left from making my chocolate peanut butter cake because instead of using a 9x13 inch dish, I used a 7x11 baking dish, so I made a few delicious cupcakes with peanut butter and chocolate icing. They were delicious.

I used a couple of new recipes for the icing and ganache which made them even more delicious.

The recipes are below for the peanut butter cream cheese icing and the chocolate peanut butter ganache.

I had some problems with the peanut butter ganache being to hot on my chocolate peanut butter cake but I can't wait to try again. It turned out great on the cupcakes though and they tasted delicious.

Easy Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Icing for Your Peanut Butter Cupcakes


Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Icing

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3 1/4 cups icing sugar
  • 1 cup cool whip
  1. In large bowl, beat butter, cream cheese, and peanut butter until well blended.
  2. Add icing sugar slowly, mixing thoroughly after each addition.
  3. Add cool whip and beat until smooth and creamy.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ganache

  • 4oz semi sweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Melt the semi-sweet chocolate in a double boiler and then stir in the cream, peanut butter and corn syrup. Let cool a few minutes before pouring it on top of the cupcakes. If you want to speed up the cooling process, put it in the fridge for a few minutes until it thickens up enough that you can still pour it but that it won't melt the peanut butter icing.

I added KitKat bites to the top for decoration but you can leave them plain or add other things like, M&M, chopped nuts, mini peanut butter cups or even gummy bears. Anything you add will make these cupcakes even better then they are.
