Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting
“Taking a walk on the dark side today! Chocolate cupcakes are fabulous and all but what about DARK chocolate cupcakes? Dark chocolate cupcakes garnished with the creamiest, dreamiest peanut butter frosting to ever grace your tastebuds and sprinkled with those magical orange, yellow, and brown gems we call Reese’s Pieces. An intensely flavored moist dark chocolate cupcake, a silky frosting, and a delightful crunch on top. This, my friends, is how you dessert.”
If you’re the kind of parent that secretly steals all the Reese’s from their kids’ trick-or-treating stash (*cough, like my husband, cough*) then these are the cupcakes that will steal your chocolate-and-peanut-butter-loving heart. Deep, dark, rich chocolate cake crowned with a swirl of creamy peanut butter icing and topped with a sprinkle of crushed Reese’s Pieces (or heck, do both the pieces and chopped peanut butter cups!) are the best way to get your fix.
