    When I made this it was to top chocolate cupcakes. I just used a boxed chocolate cake mix, put a bit of batter in the bottom of the cupcake paper, put a mini Recces peanut butter cup, then fill up to 2/3 full. After they baked, and cooled, I frosted them with this buttercream and topped each with chopped peanut butter cups. They were a HUGE hit at the bake sale.
