Peanut Butter Filled Cupcakes

Holy Heaven! These were amazing! I made these for Superbowl and they were well received!! Again...found these on Brooke's blog. The girl has some great recipes!! like her, i cheated and just got a devil's food cake mix and before baking, pushed a reese's peanut butter cup in the middle of each and let them bake. Then i topped it with the Fluffy peanut butter frosting from All Recipes.com. I topped each cupcake with a couple bits of leftover peanut butter cups. I will DEFINATELY make these again...actually, i'm going to make something similar for V-day but with a different frosting. You should definately check these out! And little Carson got his own devil's food cupcake...minus the peanut butter. I felt bad making cupcakes he couldn't have one of :)

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons milk, or as needed
2 cups confectioners' sugar

Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get good and fluffy.
