Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

I have several peanut butter cup lovers in my family so I came up with this special cupcake variety just for them.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 2 dozen chocolate cupcakes  (I used a boxed mix to save time, but if you’d prefer you can use your favorite from scratch recipe)
  • 2 dozen full size peanut butter cups
  • 2 dozen mini peanut butter cups
  • Small package of Reese’s Pieces

For the Chocolate Buttercream Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened (I use salted)
  • One 3-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • One 16-ounce package powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (I only use the real thing!)
  • Cocoa to taste (approx. 4-6 Tbsp.)

Directions:

  1. Prepare cupcake batter according to package instructions.
  2. Remove the wrappers and place a large peanut butter cup into the bottom each of your cupcake liners.  Fill liners 2/3 full with chocolate cupcake batter and bake according to package instructions.  Allow cupcakes to cool.
  3. Prepare the frosting by mixing the butter, cream cheese, cocoa and vanilla until well blended.
  4. Alternately add the powdered sugar and mild until the frosting is thick and creamy.
  5. Pipe a generous amount of frosting onto the top of each cooled cupcake.
  6. Top the cupcake with a mini peanut butter cup (still in it’s wrapper).
  7. Top the mini peanut butter cup with a dollop of frosting.
  8. Finish your cupcake off by placing three Reese’s Pieces on top of the mini peanut butter cup.

Enjoy!!!

    What a fantastic idea! My daughter loves Reese PB. I will have to try to make these for her. I think the bite at the bottom would be tons of fun to eat. 🙂 Pinned!
