Peanut Butter Cup "WOW" Cupcakes

We made this peanut butter cupcake recipe for a birthday party and it was a huge hit among peanut butter lovers. The frosting was so creamy and peanut butter heaven! You will find yourself licking the bowl over and over again.

Each cupcake was then decorated in orange cupcake wrappers and a fox fondant cupcake topper.
