Can I Make This Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting into Cupcakes? 

Of course, you can make this chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting into cupcakes.

You will need to use two boxed cake mixes to prepare this recipe. Most boxed cake mixes will make 24 – 30 cupcakes per box. So, you can easily whip up a batch of 48 cupcakes with this recipe. It’s important to know that cupcakes bake much faster than the actual cakes. This is totally normal because they are much smaller than a cake. So, start checking the chocolate cupcakes after around 15 minutes to see if they are done.

Once the cupcakes are done, you should be able to insert a toothpick, and it will come out without any crumbs or liquid from the cake on it. 

Does Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Filling Need Refrigerated? 

Yes, due to the ingredients in the chocolate cake with peanut butter filling, the recipe should be refrigerated. The cake itself would be fine to sit out, but once you add frosting, it needs to be kept cold.

Honestly, the cake is far more delicious when it’s cold anyway, so you’ll be glad you chilled it.

Chocolate Directions:

Fifth Step: Once the cakes are cool, take them out of the cake pans and cut off the domes on top.

First Step: Place the butter, powdered sugar, heavy whipping cream, vanilla, and peanut butter in a stand mixer bowl. Combine on medium speed until it’s smooth and creamy. 

Build cake directions:

First Step: Lay the first layer of the cake onto a serving platter.
