Pamper Me Senseless Peanut Butter Cup Cake

Ingredients ~
"The Perfect PMS Food" ~Leah 

1 Box Devils Food Cake Mix
3 Eggs
1/3 Cup of Oil
1 1/2 Cups Water
24 Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Cup Unsalted Butter
4 Cups Powdered Sugar
1/3 Cup Milk plus extra

Pre-heat the oven to 350°. Soften the Butter, chill the peanut butter cups. Take the peanut butter cups and cut the edges off making the inner cup a square. Place the cut sections into a bowl and back into the fridge for later. Put cupcake liners in the cupcake pan. Make the cake per the instructions on the box. Spoon cake batter into the liner, just enough to coat the bottom. Place one peanut butter cup square into each cake liner pushing down just a bit to hold in place. Fill the liners up to 2/3 rds full with the remaining batter.

Bake in the oven at 350° for 19 to 23 minutes. The cup cakes will spring back to the touch when fully cooked.

While the cakies are baking, prepare the frosting. Mix peanut butter and butter until well blended and smooth. Add half of the powdered sugar, mixing completly. Pour in the milk. Blend together. Add the remaining powdered sugar. Whip, add extra milk if needed to create the desired smooth consistency. Set aside, leaving at room temperature.

Once the cup cakes are cooled, spread frosting generously over the top. Garish with the peanut butter cup edges pushing down slightly so they stick.

*If you prefer heavily frosted cup cakes, as shown in the picture, double the frosting ingredients. Chill if you enjoy a denser, creamy cupcake with hard chocolate.
