The Absolutely Best Chocolate Reese's Cup Peanut Butter Cupcakes You'll Ever Eat!!





Notice the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup on the bottom!

The BEST!

Okay, Kids...here is the recipe:


Cupcake Ingredients:
2 tablespoons Dutch process cocoa powder
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1-1/3 cups water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Line 24 cupcakes cups with paper liners sprayed with PAM. Place one Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures on the bottom of each paper liner.

Then, place the cake mix, cocoa powder, peanut butter, water, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Blend for 30 seconds on low, then increase speed to medium for 1 minute and 30 seconds. 

Spoon 1/3 cup of batter on top of each miniature peanut butter cup. 

Bake the cupcakes until they spring back when lightly pressed with your finger. Check them after 15 minutes. They may take 17 minutes, depending on your oven temperature.


Frosting Ingredients:
1 stick of butter (room temp)
1/2 cup shortening
4 cups confectioners sugar (sifted)
1 tsp vanilla
8 tbsp milk (may need a little more or less)
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup peanut butter (creamy)

Put all ingredients into a bowl and mix with a hand mixer. Then, decorate your cupcakes!

  2. That's a neat idea. I'm sure I've seen those about somewhere (I'm in the UK). Peanut butter and chocolate is a super combination.

    Hope your poorly leg is on the mend.

  7. I want one of those so bad, but I know I would feel so guilty eating that much peanut butter and chocolate. Maybe after a long bike ride.
