For the Cupcakes:

  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

For the Peanut Butter Frosting:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For Topping:

  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chopped


For the Cupcakes:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line muffin tins with cupcake liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix on medium speed until well combined.
  4. Gradually add the boiling water to the batter, mixing on low speed. The batter will be thin, but that’s okay.
  5. Fill each cupcake liner about two-thirds full with the batter.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the Peanut Butter Frosting:

  1. In a large bowl, beat the softened butter and peanut butter until creamy.
  2. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Add the milk and vanilla extract, and beat until smooth and fluffy.


  1. Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, pipe or spread the peanut butter frosting onto each cupcake.
  2. Top each cupcake with chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
  3. Enjoy these delicious Reese’s Peanut Butter Cupcakes!

These cupcakes are a delightful treat for peanut butter and chocolate lovers. The combination of moist chocolate cupcakes, creamy peanut butter frosting, and the crunch of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups makes them irresistible.
