*Spoon equal amount of batter in lined muffin cups, filling about 2/3 full


*Bake on center rack for 15-20 minutes or until wooden toothpick comes out clean


*Remove cupcakes and place on platter in the freezer; freeze for about 8 minutes to quickly cool cupcakes


*While the cakes cool, make the frosting


*Beat together butter and peanut butter until smooth; gradually beat in the powdered sugar and 1 1/2 tsp milk, until frosting reaches a spreadable consistency (add more milk if necessary)


*Frost cupcakes and sprinkle tops with chopped peanuts; garnish with banana chip

*Sprinkle crushed peanut butter cups or drizzle chocolate over frosting before adding banana top
