Kid Pleasing Easy Brownie Peanut Butter Cupcakes



Photo by THE REYNOLDS KITCHENS

From Denny: OK, what's not to love about this cupcake? It's "genetic code" is chocolate, peanut butter, cream cheese, a fudge brownie mix and peanut butter candies for decorating.

This cupcake guards a secret: you can freeze them! Yay! Another score on the board for an easy recipe. Remember, if they do last long enough to get frozen, be sure to bring them out in enough time to come to room temperature before serving.

If you really feel industrious, make a double batch. Thrill the teacher and the friends in your kid's classroom by supplying them with a batch of these delightful cupcakes! Gifts of food has a way of making new friends. :)
