These marbled Reese’s peanut butter cupcakes are a family favorite. Chocolate and peanut butter batter swirl together forming a true indulgence. Topped with a rich chocolate frosting and holding a surprise Reese’s cup center, makes ya think dessert can’t get any better!
I don’t mean to get religious on you, but peanut butter and chocolate is proof that a higher being exists. It is the most perfect flavor combination to ever exist. Ever. Needless to say, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are one of my favorite candies.
I’ve been craving cupcakes and I realized that my first cupcake recipe I share here would have to be my Marbled Reese’s Peanut Butter cupcakes. You are going to love these cupcakes because they are the epitome of chocolate peanut buttery-ness. The cake batter is a marbled peanut butter and chocolate, so you get a taste of this delicious combination with Every. Single. Bite. To top if off, I also stuffed the cupcakes with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, because enough is never enough when it comes to this flavor combo.
Now that I am done ranting and raving over the perfection that is peanut butter and chocolate, I want to share a little secret about myself regarding cupcakes and all other frosted treats: I suck at frosting things. I mean, a three year old can do better than me. Now, I tried my hardest with these cupcakes to make them pretty, but I went through a lot (A LOT) of cupcakes to even get something that looked decent. This is why I have not done a cupcake yet and why you will not find many desserts requiring frosting here. Hey, we all have our strengths and weaknesses, right? No matter how this marbles Reese’s peanut butter cupcake looks, I promise the taste is amazing.
Now, when you look at the ingredient list, you might panic a bit. Don’t. I just separated each component, so a lot of the ingredients repeat. I promise you should have just about everything on hand to make these marbles Reese’s peanut butter cupcakes in your pantry.
Don’t have time to make these legendary treats now? Pin it for later!
