Amount Ingredient 1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix (any kind, I used Milk Chocolate) 18 Reeses cups –PEANUT BUTTER– BUTTERCREAM FROSTING– 3 3/4 cups Powdered sugar + 1/2 cup 1 tsp. Vanilla 3/4 cup Creamy Peanut Butter 6 tsp. Milk + 6 more tsp (or more.) 2 sticks [UNSALTED] Softened Butter


Mix together ingrediants for cake mix according to the back of the box. Fill each cupcake liner 3/4 full with batter. Cut each Reese cup directly in half of 12. Set aside. Use the rest (6) cups and chop them in small pieces for inside the mix. Then fold them into each of the uncooked cupcakes. Bake @ 350 for 10-15 mins.
Start by softening butter, mixing in powdered sugar, vanilla and the first 6 tsp. of milk. Then Slowly mix in Peanut Butter. Frosting should become super thick, if not, add more peanut butter…. but don’t go overboard! ;) Once the mixture is thick with the peanut butter add in 6 tsp. or more to give the whole thing a wet effect. (Should have the texture of ice cream after being stirred… lol!) Make sure it isn’t soupy though. Then add in more powdered sugar, about 1/2 cup. (You may need to add more than that.) Should be fluffy and have a strong peanut butter taste!
Then pipe icing on cooled cupcakes, and stick the halved Reeses cups on top of the Frosting. Enjoy! :)

I've been looking for a peanut butter icing for while now and these look wonderful!! I'll be making them this week for sure!! Thanks for sharing :) 


Maybe I am missing something here but why would you fill your cupcake liners first then fold in the crushed up peanut butter cups?  Why wouldn't you do that before you placed the batter in the liners?  What a mess it would be the other way.
