So I found these absolutely adorable Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes on Pinterest by The Domestic Rebel, and they were so cute I knew I had to try them! I adapted the recipe a little bit and they turned out delicious!

Ingredients for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cupcake

  • 1 box of chocolate cake mix (and the ingredients listed on the box)
  • Reese’s Miniatures
  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 cup of softened unsalted butter
  • 4 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk

1) Bake chocolate cupcakes according to the box.

2) Now make the peanut butter icing while the cupcakes cool. Mix butter, peanut butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk with a mixer (using the whisk attachment to make it fluffy). If it is too thick to pipe on your cupcakes add a little more milk.

3) Use a knife to cut out the center, so you can fill it with your yummy peanut butter icing (so the cupcake is filled with peanut butter, like a Reese’s cup).

4) Pipe icing inside and on top of your cupcake, then unwrap a Reese’s miniature and pipe a tiny bit of icing on top (to make a mini cupcake). Set your mini cupcake on top to form delicious cupcake inception! So yummy!
