Chocolate peanut butter

These cupcakes are a big hit with the guys, they taste like a peanut butter cup :)

Start with basic chocolate cupcakes...devils food works well :)

My peanut butter frosting:

1 8oz box of softened cream cheese
1 cup peanut butter (cream or chunky whatever you like)
1 cup of honey (or you can use powdered sugar, should be about 1-2 cups)
A little milk as needed to loosen it up
(you can also add 1 tsp of vanilla if you want it to be a little less peanut buttery)

It makes this really dense frosting, almost like filling (that's the way my husband prefers it) if you want it to be more fluffy like traditional butter cream frosting start with 1 - 2 sticks of soft beaten butter (or shortening) and add everything to that.

If you plan on spreading the frosting and not piping it (like on a cake) you may need to add the butter or shortening's a lot harder to spread when it's dense
