In September, I started a cupcake adventure. If you haven't read about it yet, you can do so here. ***
Few combinations thrill the masses as much as chocolate and peanut butter. So why not a cupcake version of the beloved combo?
As an ode to Mr. Reeses, I used dark orange cupcake papers.
Semisweet chocolate was melted down into a puddle of deliciousness.
Butter, sugar, and peanut butter combined to make the beginnings of the batter.
Mmm...can you smell it?!
Do you like chunky or creamy peanut butter? :)
Next, I added the melted chocolate.
Next, these superstars came onto the scene to lend a hand.
A few PB chips were sprinkled on top of each scoop of batter.
The cupcakes had a yummy cookie-like texture after being baked.
Next, Reeses Pieces were grouped together for decoration.
More melted chocolate. :)
A yummy chocolate/peanut butter combo...icing this time.
The only thing left to do was take these guys:
And slather them in this stuff:
And top them with Reeses Pieces "flowers"
I happened to have two (very) willing taste-testers on hand. While their mom was in the hospital delivering their baby brother, they were at my house getting their sugar fix. Win-win. :)
