Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Seriously what can be better than Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes!!!!!

I told my mom I would make cupcakes for Mothers Day.  I was going to make them from scratch - but then we decided to get together today instead of Sunday.  So I improvised. I had this in the cupboard, and it was perfect, it is a half portion - and makes 12 cupcakes - perfect!  I don't have to eat the leftovers!

Make it as the directions say. 

Add some awesome and most necessary chocolate chips. 

Make sure you have an adorable helper to stir those chocolate chips in.

So here is what they looked like - they look ok - right. 
Wrong - you have to add the best part - my favorite - REESE'S!!! 

I went to Walgreens - and I wanted to find the mini Reese's.  They were so expensive. I found the regular ones on sale!  Yippy! So I cut it in 4's.

Then I put one piece in the center. 
Push it down into the batter. 


Till it's all covered. 

Now they are ready to go into the oven!

Now - for the next part - I took Peanut Butter - about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup.  Then microwave it.  I heated it up :25 sec stir, and then another :25 sec. 

Then pour it over the frosting - I just used regular chocolate frosting. 

Then use your beaters - and mix them together.

MMmmm... forget the cupcakes - I'll just eat the frosting. 

Baked cupcakes - lookin good! 

Then fill a bag with a wide tip. 

And decorate!!!! 

Then top with some more chopped up Reese's on top and you are good to go! 

Then I put them back into the pan to transport to my mom's for mothers day! 

I think he likes it!
