Peanut Butter Filling for Cupcakes!

Peanut Butter Filling Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar.


  1. Bake cupcakes and let them cool completely.
  2. Using a 1M Star tip (or any other large tip), press the bottom of the tip into the center of the cupcake, twist, and lift to remove the cupcake center.
  3. Prepare the peanut butter filling by combining the peanut butter, melted butter and powdered sugar in a bowl using a mixer.
  4. Transfer the filling into a pastry bag with a large open tip (I used a 1M star tip).
  5. Insert the tip into the top of the cooled cupcakes and squeeze about a tablespoon of filling into each cupcake (filling will be runny).
  6. Pipe frosting on top of cupcakes and decorate.
  7. Allow cupcakes to sit for a little while before eating so the peanut butter filling can firm up!
  8. Enjoy! And impress your guests with this special added touch!
