Reeses Peanut Butter Cupcakes

The other day my son had his unbirthday at school so I asked him what he wanted to take and he said " Mom do you think you can make a cupcake with a Reeses in it"? Me trying to be Momma of the Year replied " For you I would make anything". So of course I had to find THE recipe that I thought would be his favorite and I knew it would have to involve peanut butter frosting! Well here is the winner...

This was a keeper for the school kids they all loved it!!! My son even asked me to make more for them lol! Hey kids are the most honest critics right lol!

1 chocolate cake mix
1 bag mini Reeses peanut butter cups

Mix cake according to directions. Place muffin cups in tins. Fill cups 1/3 full then place a Reeses in each cupcake upside down. Cover with more batter filling about 2/3 full. Bake according to directions on box.

I found a frosting recipe I like better for this cupcake and wanted to share it :)

Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting
By Project Aimee

1/3 cup solid vegetable shortening

1/3 cup butter

3/4 cup peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

4 cups of confectioner’s sugar

4-6 tbsp milk. (I used heavy whipping cream)

Cream together shortening and butter. Add peanut butter and vanilla. Slowly add the sugar along with milk one 1 tbsp at a time until light and fluffy.

Once cupcakes are frosted, melt chocolate chips in the microwave then pipe drizzle over the top. Place half of a mini Reese’s peanut butter cup on top.
