Beat butter, water, eggs, vanilla and sugar in a bowl.
In another bowl, combine your dry ingredients. Slowly incorporate the dry mixture into the wet using a hand mixer.
Line a muffin sheet with cupcake liners. Then distribute the mixture evenly among the 12 molds. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Once the muffins are finished, remove from the pan and allow to cool completely (about 20-30 minutes). While the cupcakes cool, prep the kettle chips by melting the semi-sweet baking squares with the butter in a small sauce pan, stirring frequently. Once thoroughly melted, pour over potato chips on wax paper. Place in the fridge/freezer to harden.
While the cupcakes continue to cool, prepare the peanut butter cream frosting by whipping together the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, peanut butter and half & half.
If cupcakes have cooled, pipe or spread icing onto the cakes to your liking. Top with chocolate covered kettle chips, and enjoy.
