Peanut Butter Cupcakes is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used a chocolate mousse filling and the Wilton Chocolate Buttercream Icing for these cupcakes and they were a total hit at home and at work! I will be making a double batch for a bake sale next week! My only notes to this recipe would be that you end up with only a subtle peanut butter taste, which is great if that is what you are going for. But for my next batch of these, I plan to up the peanut butter to a whole cup and see if that gives it a little more peanut butter-y taste. Either way, this recipe is definitely worth trying! Yummy! I might even try them with a strawberry or grape filling for a PB&J take on cupcakes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I used this recipe for a stand up cake I made. It's very simple and easy to make and the batter is delicious! I don't know if others have had this problem.....The cake mix after baking and cooled, would dry and crust up here and there while I was decorating it. Extremely thick and required a decent amount of liquid to get down. Still a good recipe and I would recommend trying this recipe out. Everyone at the party commented how delicious it was.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from These cupcakes tasted awful! (I used 1/2 evaporated milk and half water) and they were not sweet at all. I even tried adding a mini Reese cup in the middle and then frosting with the chocolate butter cream and even topping it with another mini Reese but still they were not sweet. I haven't thrown them out...yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was testing this recipe for my daughter's upcoming wedding. These were absolutely delicious!! Fairly moist when baked for 18 minutes and completely done. I used the Wilton chocolate butter cream to top it and it was perfection. These will definitely be on the reception dessert table. Thank you Wilton!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this recipie! The cupcakes are so light and fluffy and soft they melt in your mouth! We also made chocolate buttercream to go on top of them and they are amazing. We didnt fill them but even without the filling they just taste amazing! I am making these for my Wedding!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great recipe for a unique cupcake! The peanut butter flavor is a little subtle but definitely there. Flavor and consistency are great, especially when topped with the Wilton recipe for chocolate buttercream. Tastes like a Reese's peanut butter cup!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Peanut Butter flavor was fine, not over bearing, but they were a little dry, and I followed the recipe to the T. Don't make too far in advance of your party or you will be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brought these to work and my co-workers loved them. I didn't think they very hard and the center filling was a nice change to the plain cupcakes.
