Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes My kids love peanut butter and chocolate and my Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes are a frequent request. They are the perfect cupcake to take to a family gathering, summer picnics, or just a special treat. If you take them to a gathering where you may not know everyone’s food allergy status, I highly recommend you put a note near the try that let’s people know they contain peanuts.

To make these fun cup cakes you will need. 12 baked chocolate cupcakes, 2 bags/boxes of  Reese’s Pieces candy, a piping bag with the Wilton 1D tip (or large open start nozzle ), and my Peanut Butter Chocolate icing recipe (below):

Peanut Butter Chocolate Icing

  • ½ cup of peanut butter (smooth works best)
  • 1/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa
  • 2-2/3 cups of icing sugar
  • ¼ tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup of cream
  • 2 tbsps of margarine
  • 1 tbsp of Cream of Tartar or meringue powder

Cream the peanut butter and margarine together then add the vanilla and cocoa. Next add the cream and then the icing sugar and Cream of Tartar. (Cream of Tartar works wonders, especially in the heat, in helping the piped icing hold it’s shape).

Add your piping tip to your bag and fill ¾ of the way with the icing. Pipe on to cooled cupcakes.

Add the Reese’s Pieces Candy to your icing as a tasty garnish.

These cupcakes are sure to impress any Peanut butter and Chocolate lover.
