Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes are perfect for the chocolate and peanut butter lover in your life. Rich chocolate cupcakes are topped with a creamy peanut butter frosting, Reese’s pieces, a mini Reese’s peanut butter cup and a drizzle of chocolate.
Since we are gone most of the night, we usually have a ton of Halloween candy left over so I usually try to find creative ways to use up the leftovers that we have.
The hubs is a big fan of chocolate and peanut butter so I tossed in as much peanut butter goodness as I could into these cupcakes.
The cupcake batter comes together in about 5 minutes with just one bowl. You can definitely use your favorite box of cake mix if you prefer but these homemade ones are just as easy since you won’t even have to pull out your stand mixer.
Once the cupcakes are baked and cooled, a generous swirling of peanut butter buttercream frosting gets piped on top. This fluffy buttercream pairs perfectly with cupcakes, brownies, cakes, cookies and even straight off the spatula.
We finish these cupcakes off by topping them off with Reese’s pieces, a mini Reese’s peanut butter cup and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
They are sweet, indulgent and will totally satisfy any craving for those days that calories don’t count.
