Prepare cake mix for cupcakes as directed on box. Cool completely before frosting.
Peanut Butter Frosting
1/3 C. butter, softened
1 C. creamy peanut butter
3 TBSP milk
2-2 1/2 C. powdered sugar
Using an electric mixer beat all ingredients until thick and creamy. Chill frosting until ready to use. Bring to room temperature to use. Using an icing bag with a long pointed tip, stick the tip into the cupcake to fill it with frosting - be careful to not go through the bottom of the cupcake with the tip. Frost the tops of the cupcakes.
Melt 4 blocks of almond bark in a microwave safe bowl for 30-second intervals until chocolate is melted. Pour chocolate into an icing bag fitted with a writing tip or into a plastic baggie. Snip off the very tip of one end of baggie.
Lay a sheet of wax paper on a baking sheet or directly onto the table. Pipe the word DAD onto the wax paper using the chocolate. Make sure all of the letters are connected so that it will harden as one piece of chocolate. Allow chocolate to dry and harden. Place a chocolate DAD on top of each cupcake.
