Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes

Reese cup candies are one of my favorites and I just so happened to be craving some today so I thought I would make a cupcake that has the same flavors for all of us chocolate and peanut butter lovers out there. Not only are they pretty and fun for kids but for big kids as well. These dynamite cupcakes will crave anyone’s sweet tooth.

1 cup + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs

Frosting:
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
4 tablespoons vegetable shortening
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
chocolate sprinkles for garnish

1. Pre-heat oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl add flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, cocoa, peanut butter, milk, vanilla and eggs. Mix well with an electric mixture until smooth. Line muffin tins with cupcake liners or spray with oil. Fill cups half way full. Bake 15-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool.

2. Meanwhile, In a large mixing bowl add powdered sugar, shortening, peanut butter and vanilla. Mix well with an electric mixer until smooth and a thick consistency. With a Wilton tip # 30 add frosting to bag and carefully pipe frosting onto cupcake. Sprinkle frosting with chocolate sprinkles.
