Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

Peanut Butter Cups are seriously one of my favorite candies.  No joke – at Halloween, I sneak all of the peanut butter cups out of my kids’ candy buckets when they aren’t looking and stash them away (hey – they have plenty of other candy!)

So really, it was only a matter of time before these became cupcakes!

Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes
An Amy’s Confectionery Adventures Original Recipe

1 bag Mini Peanut Butter Cups
Melted chocolate, optional

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line muffin tins with liners.  Prepare the chocolate and peanut butter cakes in separate bowls.

Alternate placing 2 tablespoons of each batter into each muffin cup.  After the cups are all filled, swirl the batter gently with a butter knife to create a marble pattern.

Bake in the preheated oven for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcakes comes out clean.  Remove the cupcakes from the tins and cool completely.

To frost, use a 2D (large closed star) tip to pipe Peanut Butter Buttercream onto each cupcake.  Drizzle melted chocolate over the top, if desired.  Top each cupcake with a mini peanut butter cup.

Makes 48 cupcakes
