Maybe the best combination of all…chocolate and peanut butter.

Total time:  45 minutes
Yield: 12 cupcakes

For cupcakes:
1 bag
Pamela’s Chocolate Cake Mix
2 large eggs
1 1/4 c. water
1/2 c. oil

For frosting:
4 ounces of cream cheese at room temperature
1/4 c. (half a stick) of butter or butter substitute (Earth Balance) at room temperature
1/2 c. peanut butter
3/4 c. sifted powder sugar
(measure after sifting)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan.

    My kids and I love to make these with the mini-muffin pans – makes the recipe go a long way.
