Servings: 24 Cupcakes
Preheat oven to 375°F and line cupcake pan with liners and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, combine all of the cupcake ingredients, making sure to scrape down the sides as needed.
Add a scant ¼ cup of batter to each liner so they’re about ¾ full.
Reduce heat to 350°F and bake the cupcakes for about 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
Let the cupcakes sit in the pan for a couple of minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely before frosting.
Use a cupcake corer to core the cupcakes, fill the holes with mini Reese's Pieces.
While the cupcakes are cooling, prepare the Peanut Butter Frosting as indicated in the recipe instructions.
Pipe frosting onto the cooled cupcakes. Top each cupcake with a Reese's cup.
For added wow, Use a small frosting tip to frost the Reese's cup!
