Reeses Cupcakes

Reeses Cupcakes
Idea from The Food Network Magazine Jan/Feb Issue

Here is another cupcake idea from the Food Network Magazine with my own twist. Unfortunately the peanut butter sank to the bottom of the cupcakes during baking. If I were to make this recipe again I would probably fill the cupcakes with peanut butter after baking.

your favorite chocolate cake recipe for 24 cupcakes
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate melts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pans with cupcake liners. Prepare your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe per recipe directions. Fill cupcake liners 1/3 full with cake mixture. Add 1 Tablespoon of peanut butter to the center of each cupcake. Fill cupcakes with additional cake mixture until 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 to 21 minutes. Allow cupcakes to cool completely. Frost each cupcake with creamy peanut butter. Heat chocolate melts in the microwave until melted (approximately 1 minute on high, stirring frequently). Spread a circle of chocolate over each cupcake. Place cupcakes in freezer for a few minutes or until chocolate hardens. Serve immediately.
