If you like chocolate and peanut butter, get ready for a dream come true. Double Chocolate Reese’s Pieces Cupcakes topped with melted chocolate and candies! These are perfect for any occasion but fabulous for Halloween! You don’t have to feel stressed about making super cute Skeleton Cupcakes or Frankenstein Cupcakes. Your treats don’t have to scream Halloween, simply using some Halloween colors will do the trick! Reese’s Pieces are a perfect fit for this spooky holiday and who doesn’t love the chocolate and peanut butter combination?
I drizzled a little ganache on top of my cupcakes but you can use melted chocolate or none at all! (Ganache, melt 1/2 C. chocolate chips and 2 Tbsp. whipping creme together) I added it to give them a little more glamour and to bring out the Halloween colors of the candies!
Are you drooling yet? I tasted the frosting and it tasted exactly like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup! I used a scratch recipe for these but you cane always use one of my cake mix recipes if you prefer, like the one for these Easy Frankenstein Cupcakes!
I made some cupcakes similar to these last year with a regular peanut butter frosting and they were delicious, so I knew I wanted to make a little more Halloweeny version this time around.
Enjoy! And thanks so much for sharing, pinning, liking, following and reading! It’s because of YOU that I get to bake so much every week and bring you new and fabulous recipes!
