Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cup Cakes

Hello Lovlies! thanks for coming back! Today were baking and so Seriously Savanah. Tomorrow is my boyfriend Jose's (youll hear about him a lot i promise you) 18th birthday! He asked me to make his birthday cake/cupcakes and i said of course! i asked him what he wanted and he said something with a lot of peanut butter, and that is exactly what i created, with a lot of research i found the perfect recipie to make delicious chocolate cupcakes filled with peanut butter filling and topped with a peanut butter icing. (YUM!) These cupcakes are seriously so easy and only took about an hour to complete. on to the yumminess....

Step 1: Turn your oven to 350 degrees and line your cupcake pan with cupcake liners.

Step 2: Get out your favorite box of chocolate cup cake mix and start mixin' !

Step 3: Fill each cupcake liner about 3/4 of the way full and pop them in the oven for 19 minutes (or whatever your box says)

Step 4: while the cupcakes are baking start preparing your Peanut butter filling and Icing

Filling Ingredients

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
1 and 1/4 cups powdered sugar

Step 5: Start by mixing just the butter and the peanut butter together
i pictured this to be difficult and annoying like mixing cookie dough? no, its nothing like that! it's so easy especially if you let the butter sit out a little bit and soften.

Step 6: once youve finished mixing the peanut butter and butter together start adding the powdered sugar a little bit at a time until youve mixed it all into your filling

Step 7: Your cupcakes are probably ready now so take them out of the oven and let them cool off COMPLETELY!

Step 8: Once cooled, start by hollowing out all of your cupcakes with a tooth pick

Step 9: Grab a large zip-lock baggy and turn it inside out, then put your hand inside the bag and grabd a corner then begin putting the peanut butter filling into the palm of your hand (that is lined with the baggy). once all the filling is in your hand turn the bag right side out and zip it shut, then twist the bag tight and snip the end off.

Step 10: begin piping the filling into each of the hollowed out cupcake holes

Step 11: Begin preparing the frosting! now the frosting is litterly identical to the filling except the mesurments change a little bit..honestly they taste the same you could just double the recipie and use the filling as filling and frosting but whatever floats your cupcake boat.

Frosting Ingredients

1 and 1/4 cups of peanut butter
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup powdered sugar

Step 12: repeat steps 5 and 6

Step 13: Repeat step 9 using the frosting and begin swirling it on each cupcake.
this is seriously the easiest way ever to frost a cupcake, its free, and you dont dirty a knife!

And your done! They were so easy right? and so delicious! comment down below letting me know if you try it out!

Until next time, Savanah (:
