Switch to plug

I am doing some kitchen remodling, and I have a switch on the back splash are that controls a plug that is no longer accessable. In the box there are two 14-2 wires, the two black wires are attached to the switch, and the two white wires are connected to each other. Can I turn this box into a plug receptacle?

No. In the US counter top circuits must be 20 amp. This circuit must be eliminated in your remodeling, or you must simply install a blank cover over the box.
