I’m not kidding. These deliciously chocolaty, rich with peanut butter, covered in more chocolate and peanut butter cupcakes are to die for.


Ladies and gentlemen,


I present to you the best cupcakes in the world. If you know me at all, you are likely aware of just how obsessed I am with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. So, when I saw that my friend Molly, of CakeFYI, had a Resse’s peanut butter filled chocolate cupcake recipe, I got a little excited – read crazy excited. Of course, I’m not just sharing this recipe to give myself an excuse to make them. I’m sharing these delicious treats because Molly is starting an exciting project and needs our help!



Now, on to the cupcakes!

Makes: 12 cupcakes
For the Chocolate Cupcakes:
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup plus 2 tbsp flour
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tbsp cocoa Powder
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup saffola or canola oil
  • 1 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup water, boiling
For the Peanut Butter Icing:

For the Peanut Butter Drizzle
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
For the Chocolate Cupcakes:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together. Add egg, milk, oil, and vanilla extract and beat well. Pour in boiling water, and stir the batter until well combined.
  3. Using a measuring cup, pour batter into a lined or greased cupcake pan. The batter will be very thin, which is fine.
  4. Bake for 18-22 minutes. Let cool completely.
For the Peanut Butter Icing:
  1. Cream the butter, then add half of the powdered sugar. Add the milk and continue to beat. Continue to add powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency. Beat in the peanut butter.
For the Chocolate Drizzle:
  1. Microwave chocolate chips in a bowl, stopping to stir every 30 seconds. Once melted, stir in the butter.
For the Peanut Butter Drizzle:
  1. Microwave peanut butter for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
Assembly & Decorating:
  1. Once cooled, fill each cupcake with peanut butter icing. To do so, fill a large piping bag fitted with a star tip with peanut butter icing. Push the icing tip into the cupcake, and squeeze the bag while lifting the piping bag out of the cupcake. Once filled, top with more peanut butter icing and drizzle cupcakes with melted chocolate and peanut butter, if desired. Top with chopped Reese’s.

  • Mary

    LOVE these! Just an observation – It looks like the prep information is still from the outrageously yummy pancakes you previously posted. Does this recipe yield 24 cupcakes?

  • Row

    Love the photos! So gorgeous. I have to make these delicious cupcakes asap… thanks for the recipe! :)

  • Renee @ Awesome on $20

    These cupcakes might become my favorite. I lived for two years in a country where they don’t sell Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. It was awful.

  • Evan Thomas

    Now you’re speaking my language

  • Krystle N

    These are delicious! However the yield reads”6-8 pancakes” and one of the required tools is a flat griddle. ;-)

  • RavieNomNoms

    Wow, those are so impressive! They look scrumptious!

  • Alison @ Ingredients, Inc.

    omg yes please!!

  • Shashi

    Oh my – these are most definitely the best cupcakes in the world!

  • Crystal

    You mentiomed something about Molly needing our help and a kickstart program. Do you have more information?

  • A Growing Garden

    Oh my…. I must make these. They look heavenly!!

  • Kathy H

    Curious…why does the recipe read 6-8 pancakes and list needing a griddle and/or a skillet?

    • Chili

      You eat huge stack of pancakes while baking these cupcakes, and of course you will need a griddle and or skillet to whip them up.

  • Jennie @themessybakerblog

    Whoa, that’s one good lookin’ cupcake. I’m all about the classic pb and chocolate combo. Now, fork two over ;)

  • Nicole

    These are amazing pictures. You have made these cupcakes look so sexy.

  • Ally

    This sucked! I made them and they collapsed in on them selves. I did exactly as the recipe said and now I can’t bring anything too my own mothers birthday. Defiantly no worth wasting your ingredients, no matter how “perfect” they look.

  • Adam

    Those look delicious and they include my favorite candy! They are perfection!

  • Kristin

    I made these cupcakes for Thanksgiving and they were a hit! The recipe was time consuming but easy. This is my go-to recipe whenever I really want to impress a group. People said they looked like they came straight from a bakery.

    9回裏1死満塁、中村晃(ソフトバンク)がヒットを打てばサヨナラ勝ちという場面。フルカウントで「ここは気持ちが大事!」と大興奮する放送席に、ベンチ横からリポートする中居の冷静な声がカットインした。「内野の守備隊形見てください。5人いますね」。この指摘に、実況アナは「あーーっ!!そうですねー!! 外野が2人!」と驚きの声。中村のアップを撮っていたカメラも、内野全体を見渡せる引きの画面に切り替わった。確かに5人いる。その直後、中村が狭い三遊間を抜き、劇的なサヨナラ勝ち。「内野5人を抜けていきましたー!!」という実況につながった。
