Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Cupcakes

Last year I made Nutella Swirl Cupcakes and since then I’ve wanted to try a chocolate and peanut butter version. A fall birthday was the perfect occasion to try these out. This is an easy recipe, especially if you use a cake mix. (I won’t tell.) I should have done a better job taking photos of the process, but I promise it’s simple.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Cupcakes-Yum!

I added chocolate frosting, but these are great on their own as well! What other combos do you think would be good for the swirl technique?
