Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

I love peanut butter! I eat it on toast for breakfast, on sandwiches for lunch, and straight out of the jar for a late night snack!

If you love peanut butter too, you’ll go crazy for these Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes! They include a surprise Reese’s Cup right in the center.

Best of all they’re topped off with a rich peanut butter frosting and a chocolate drizzle. The frosting contains 1 whole CUP of peanut butter! It tastes just like peanut butter only better!
