The cupcake is a little like a cross between a regular chocolate cupcake and a brownie.
It’s good, BUT if you have a tried and true chocolate cupcake recipe, go with that!
(I’m still on a quest for the perfect chocolate cupcake…)
But this frosting is to die for! It’s absolutely going to be a staple in my cake baking.
I could eat it by the spoonful. I may or may not have already. Just sayin’.
Putting the cupcakes together
- Using a little knife, core out a little circle of cake from the middle of the cupcake. Make it as big or little as you would like. If you love a lot of peanut butter yumminess, like we do, make the hole as above (about inch deep and wide).
- Fill in all of the holes with the frosting first. Then use the remaining frosting to icing the cupcakes.
- Add chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups on top of the icing.
