Reese's Cupcakes

Reese's Cupcakes

If you like Reese’s you’re not going to want to miss out on this cupcake! With these you get a delicious chocolate cupcake that’s baked with a Reese’s in the batter, then it’s topped with a fluffy and decadent peanut butter buttercream frosting and of course it’s finished with more Reese’s. Chocolate and peanut butter were meant to be together and thank you Reese’s for proving that :). My husband labeled these as “to die for!” and it’s a term I’m quite certain I’ve never heard him use before. My kids also loved these and they had so much fun making them with me.
