Peanut Butter Cupcakes {THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS LINKY PARTY #102}

THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS has changed, you can now link up ANY recipe you'd like. Come one, Come all. NO rules, NO requirements, just link up any recipe (or food related craft items) and hop around to visit all the great recipes.

This is a SIMPLE and easy Peanut Butter Cupcake, that doesn't even require a recipe (well almost). I love making cupcakes, they aren't fancy and I am still working on my frosting skills, but I do love making them, store bought cupcakes are non-existent in my home, NEVER EVER EVER will I buy those again (that hasn't always been the case), but since my blog began in 2010, I've haven't bought another store cupcake, and I hope to keep it that way. 

Peanut Butter Cupcakes
no recipe needed

Make a batch of your favoite homemade or from a box chocolate cupcakes.
Add in about 3/4 of a bag of Peanut Butter M&M's before baking.

Bake as directed and then frost and added 3 colorful M&M's to the top for decoration. Our favorite buttercream frosting works great with these cupcakes.

Buttercream Frosting
from Your Homebased Mom

3 sticks butter, softened
2 lbs. powdered sugar (approx. 7 cups)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
whipping cream or 1/2 and 1/2 – enough to thin frosting to desired consistency

Beat butter in mixer on medium high for 2-3 minutes or until pale and creamy. Reduce speed to medium and add sugar, 1/2 cup at a time. Beat well after each addition increasing speed to high after all sugar is added. Add vanilla and food coloring if desired. Beat until buttercream is smooth. Can be refrigerated for several days if covered. If refrigerating, bring to room temperature before using and beat on low until smooth.
