Peanut Butter Cookie Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

It’s February and you know what that means.  For 6 weeks you will be up to your eyeballs in Girl Scout cookies. They will be at your doorstep and outside of every grocery store in town teasing you with tasty treats.  This year let’s get creative.  Let’s do something other than just binge eat entire sleeves of cookies (which of course is perfectly acceptable) but let’s change it up.

Instructions
Cupcakes
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare the boxed mix as directed. Line a muffin tin with your choice of fashionable cupcake jackets and fill each one 1/4 cup full with the vanilla batter. Place a Dosi Do in the center.
  2. Cover Dosi Do with cake batter; filling 3/4 full. I know recipes say 2/3 full but in 18 cupcakes I only had one rise over the edges at 3/4 full.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool completely
  4. Frost these delicious morsels with the chocolate frosting to make them that much more irresistible.
  5. EAT!!!!! Chocolate peanut butter deliciousness. These are not too sweet or too rich. I have a feeling Goldilocks would be all up in my cupcakes. They are perfection...and so moist. I hate that word but it is required to describe these.
Chocolate Frosting
  1. Melt your butter. Stir in cocoa until smooth. Alternately add your powdered sugar and milk until desired sweetness and consistency is reached. Stir in the vanilla. This recipe is adapted from the Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" chocolate frosting recipe. I have found that l need less sugar and milk to get the exact flavor I want. If you like your frosting super sweet then you may want to go with the original recipe.
Recipe Notes

Now, I'm normally not a boxed cake mix person, but being so busy with all this cookie selling, vanilla cake mix in a box would have to do...and boy did it!  I kid you not, I ate two in one sitting without even a second thought.  You may notice that I only suggested serving 9 people for 18 cupcakes. This is simply for the fact that I do not believe you can stop yourself from eating two. So 9 people, 2 each.

Get your Girl Scout cookie on!
