Baking Recipe: Reese's Peanut Butter Cupcake

I admit recently that my posting has been rather slow and I had been getting feedback from my buddies that I need to get the ball rolling. I do apologise and hope that you continue to support me nevertheless. It's a new year and work has been on a rocky start this year. No excuse, but it did dampened my spirit and all I wanted to do was just nothing during the weekends.

Thanks to your sweet compliments, that gave me the drive to think of what to bake for my family and friends. In fact, I can't wait to share this with you too.
Today's post is meant for all the Reese's Peanut Buttercup fans; and if I say so myself, I am one crazy peanut butter and chocolate lover. I love it not only on a slice of bread, even if I had to choose an ice-cream flavour to indulge in, PB and Chocolate is my No.1 go to sin. Yummm.. yummm.

Over the weekend, my family was treated to my very own favourite flavour pairings. Peanut Butter and Chocolate. I just love the rich creamy taste of peanut butter, and when nobody's watching, I would just eat it as it is with a spoon licking it sparkly clean. Delish!!

I baked them my very own ultimate Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcake. If you have not had one before, feel free to order them from me if you like ;p. Caution though, just make sure you order sufficient cuppies so that you don't have to fight with anyone to get seconds or thirds..LOL

If the name still haven't manage to tempt you, maybe this might. The dark rich moist chocolate cupcake has a layer of salty-sweet creamy peanut butter fluffy frosting slathered all over. On the inside, there is a peek-a-boo moment, let's just say more peanut butter? Yup, that's right each cupcake had 2 mini Reese's peanut buttercups submerged into the batter, baked to perfection. Sweet cream peanut butter on the outside, paired with slightly salty peanut butter from Reese's buttercup on the inside is simply heaven.

  2. You've managed to tempt me, lol. I've been a bit wore out myself. Sorry you missed saying good-bye to Visda, we will miss her and we miss you too. I'm moving in a couple of weeks and hope after that my schedule should ease up. Maybe baking some of these yummy cupcakes would give me a boost. Hope you have a wonderful week and don't work too hard.

  5. Submerged Reese cups, now that is my kind of cupcake! Nothing is better than pb and chocolate-so these cupcakes do fall into the must try category! I like how you decorated these with the little Reese candy on top. This recipe should have a note to save back a few for yourself before serving-no doubt they would disappear quickly. Enjoy the day!

    1. I must have accidentally click on something, as I am sure I don't recall removing your remarks:

      I agree with Ping...you came back with a bang, as you always do, Jo!
      You disappear for a week or two, come back with a fabulous dessert, and BANG...you're on Top 9!
      Not that I'm complaining, I try to comment back to all the bloggers that comment on my blog, plus I do a lot of buzzing on foodbuzz...to date: the latest buzz on my banana bread is 97 buzz...not even making it as a #9 spot on Top 9!
      Maybe I will do some "shmoozing" with the foodbuzz crew!

      Your Reese's cupcakes are totally yummy...love the pretty decorations; I can only allow myself to have one bite...sinfully outragously delicious:DDD
      Hugs,

      My reply:
      Hi Elisabeth! Not sure where your comment went as I am sure I didn't remove it. Thanks for the sweet support! Hope you're doing well and will be buzzing you real soon over at your side. Huggss, Jo

    Besides we can always be sure that the waiting will be worth it! ;)

    XOXO,
    Tobias

  25. Beautiful pipping on these cupcakes. I think it may be good we don't live near each other because I would always help you clean out your baking. Reese's is Oz favorite candy so maybe when I feel nice I'll make these for him. Hehe.
