Chocolate peanut butter cupcakes

Another good name for this recipe would be Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes.

Yum :)

Ingredients (Cupcake part)
  • 1/2 packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (divided)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Ingredients (Frosting)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
Cupcake Instructions
  • Beat the 1st three ingredients for cupcakes, stir in chocolate chips and vanilla, then set aside
  • Beat remaining  1/2 teaspoon vanilla, butter, sugar, and 1/3 cup brown sugar until creamy, then add egg and beat
  • Combine flour, soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in separate bowl, then stir into butter mixture
  • Place in mini muffin cups
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes
  • Spoon chocolate chip mixture over (that you set aside in step one) and bake 10 more minutes
Frosting Instructions
  • Place butter and peanut butter in a bowl and beat
  • Gradually mix in powdered sugar and milk one tablespoon at a time while beating

Use a decorating bag tool to squeeze out frosting in fun designs on top. Here is a picture of the cupcakes before you add the frosting.

My apron doesn't fit like it used to. I wonder why?

My little helpers!

Note: After making this recipe, I decided that the cupcake ingredients (minus the chocolate chip layer) weren't quite enough. I had too much frosting and chocolate chip layering left over. I would double the cupcake portion of the recipe next time.
