Chocolate Chip Banana Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

I had some over-ripe bananas and decided to try to use them in something other than Banana Bread. I think for my first shot these turned out quite delicious!


1 x Box Double Chocolate Cake Mix
3 x Over-ripe bananas, mashed
1 x 3.5 oz box instant chocolate pudding
3/4 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
3 eggs
1 cup mini-semi-sweet chocolate chips

Peanut Butter Frosting. (Recipe Follows)

1. Preheat oven to 325F. Grease or line muffin tins.

2. Combine cake mix, bananas, pudding, oil, milk, and eggs. Beat at low speed 1 - 2 min until combined. Increase speed to medium high and beat 3 minutes.

3. Fold in chocolate chips.

4. Fill muffin tins 2/3 the way with the batter. Bake 20-25 minutes until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely.


1/4 cup butter, softened
6 tbls cream
1.5 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups marshmallow cream
1.5 tsp vanilla extract.

Beat butter, cream, and peanut butter until combined. Add marshmallow and vanilla. Beat until combined. Can frost immediately or allow to chill and pipe onto cupcakes.
